In the first half of this year, 6,286 people were added to the city’s registry. At the end of June, Prague had a population of 1.341 million residents.

Still, more people have died so far this year than were born. The increase in population was ensured by people who moved to the metropolis. This follows from the information of the Czech Statistical Office.

The country’s total population thus exceeded the number of 10.7 million at the end of June, a pleasing statistic considering the fact that population growth was lower in the first quarter of this year.

From January to the end of June, 7,309 children were born in the capital, which is about two hundred more than a year ago. The number of deaths increased year on year, to a saddening 7,787 people.

Last year, in the first half of the year, statisticians recorded about 1,600 fewer deaths in Prague. This increase is due to the coronavirus pandemic.

There were 478 fewer children born in Prague in the first half of the year than deaths, and 6,764 more people moved to the city. 24,602 new inhabitants came to Prague and 17,838 people left altogether.
