Price funeral has risen by five times the fall of totalitarianism

"The current price may seem high, but if we convert the cost of a funeral in 1989, he would have been around 45,000 crowns. Due to stiff competition and lower profits funeral, the price roughly equal to the average salary," said Jaroslav Mangla, chairman of the Association of burial of services. He recalled that funeral prices in response to rising energy prices and wage costs including material inputs less than in other sectors.

"Despite the positive developments in the Czech Republic, there is still a qualitative difference between the funeral services," said Mangla with the fact that people in rural areas spend more for funerals than in urban areas, but exceptions are everywhere.

Miserable situation after the fall of totalitarianism

Previous regime left behind by Czech Prime Funeral Association in ruins. "It was where and what to build. High quality service was the first republic and higher than under the rule of the communists was even during the 2nd World War," said Mangla.

Slowly began to disappear funeral type vehicles Skoda 1203 and rebuilt bakery black "van" type AVIA 30, in which the deceased came to twelve, replaced transits brands. "Some entrepreneurs rebuilt imported civilian cars, estate, the funeral specials. Today is no exception to that funeral casket carrying limousine Mercedes Benz, Opel or Volvo," said the President.

Choice of three types of coffins? Ancient history

In 1989, people could choose from black or brown coffin, or so-called "oak stick," lined paper. Today, private services offer dozens of types of types of coffins and colors including satin trim. "Dearest, yet qualitatively poor oak coffin was 2500 crowns. Offer VIP Today American coffin up for 80,000 crowns," said Mangla. He is convinced that the current cheapest coffins are better than the most expensive 24 years ago. Solvent Private funeral services now have their own refrigerated morgue, where store and regulate the deceased before the funeral service.

Burial in the ground or cremation? Czechs choose cremation

Cremation burials have been suppressed under the previous regime, but it is currently ashing for the Czechs 'trendy'. Cremation has deep roots in the Czech Republic, and now more people are inclined to the cremation ceremony."It helps with mental compensation and death acceptance, and this is not just a cremation," said Mangla.
