Unless otherwise directed, having dinner or being invited out are reserved for personal interaction and not for business. Compliment those who prepared the food, allowing them to actively talk about the preperation of the meal.
Customs: Czech people prefer formal greetings at first, eye contact, hand shakes and introductions. Informal language can often be used after being invited out or to somebody's home. If inivite home, gifts of chocolate, wine or brandy are cozy gifts. Gifts are often opened directly when recieved.
If giving flowers, give an odd number (not 13 as it is unlucky) because even numbers are reserved for funerals.
Czech people are often indirect with their communication and will try their best not to offend a person and so they tend to avoid using a direct "No" in situations, business and personal.
Czech health care has come to speed with European Union standards. The Czech republic has universal health care where public hospitals are funded by the government through taxes and so all Czech citizens can obtain free health care through this system. Yet despite this, private health care is available and is often better quality with less waiting periods for those who can afford it. Due to its low cost of living and its improving health care system and quality, the Czech Republic is becoming an increasingly hot spot for health tourism.
