    There is no "average EU salary" that would make any sense to ask for as actual salaries are highly dependent on many factors.
    Experience, years of service, education (to some degree, mainly for juniors), actual job, etc. etc.

    In the east where you are salaries are a lot lower for example than in the west, and even here there are massive differences.
    Someone in London can make twice as much on the same job as he'd make in Edinburgh for example (I know, a friend encountered that) but with the cost of living being more than twice as high he'd not have much benefit from it except possibly living in a city he likes better.

    As a junior I seriously doubt you'd make more than €2000 a month before taxes anywhere though, probably half that at most in your country.
    But that's a very rough estimate based on what I made when I started with some correction based on the general salary development I've seen over the years.
    I'd not be surprised if actual starting salaries are actually lower than that (and yes, it's pretty near minimum wages).

    Thank you for your answer. You are right that it is hard to estimate what to ask
    I did made some research on the web for the salaries as Junior in Prague and Czech in general... They are not so much different than my country of origin (Bulgaria) but i will give it a shot at 1500 ~ 2000 EUR starting.
    I am affraid that i cannot support my self in Prague, thats why i ask...
    Anyways thanx for the answer...
