Czech Republic is far more wealthier than Turkey. It is not only based on per capita basis, but with quality of life, infrastructure, medical care and social development. Czech Republic is also ahead of older EU countries like Portugal. Prague alone has GDP closer to 40000 Euros, making it one the wealthiest cities in Europe on par level of Stockholm. People still think in old, Cold War mentality, but presently, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Estonia, and Slovakia are moving to upper income bracket, leaving southern Europe behind.
