You can find out the difference between the cost of living in a city you are interested in and the reference value of 100, which is designated for Prague as a reference point. Cost of living index for every other city is determined by comparing the local costs with the costs of living in Prague. So, if a city has an index of 134, that means that the cost of living is 34 percent higher than in Prague.
