Czech population climbs by just under 5,000

The number of people living in the Czech Republic in the first quarter of the year has climbed by 4,700 with the total population now standing at 10.558 million. The rise was due to the number of immigrants, at 10,500, being more than double the around 5,000 quitting the country. The number of deaths exceeded births over the first three months of the year. Most of those moving into the Czech Republic are from Ukraine, Slovakia, and Romania.
