Stocks in this article: YELP

PRAGUE, July 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Yelp Inc. (NYSE: YELP), the company that connects consumers with great local businesses, today announced the availability of Yelp Czech Republic ( http://www.yelp.cz). Beginning today, people in the Czech Republic are able to create accounts on Yelp.cz to share their opinions about great local businesses.

"The Czechs already have the reflex to look online for information about local businesses and have, until now, needed to scour multiple destinations to get the true colour of what experience they can expect," said Miriam Warren, Vice President New Markets. "Today sees the arrival of Yelp in the Czech Republic and as we hand over the reigns to the locals, we look forward to watching it develop into the go-to destination for local business insight, as it has in the 21 countries we have already launched in".

One of the most prosperous of the post-communist countries, the Czech Republic has an educated and tech savvy population. Putting these attributes together with a love of sharing and entrepreneurship, the Czechs are an ideal match for the Yelp ideal of connecting people with great local businesses.

The capital, Prague, one of the top ten most visited cities in Europe, will see the initial concentration of Yelp's community building efforts. However, the full-featured site will be available across the whole of the Czech Republic for people to share their insights about what is good, great, and not so great about the businesses in their neighbourhoods, wherever they are. The site supports Czech, English, Danish, Dutch, French, Finnish, German, Italian, Norwegian, Spanish, Swedish, Polish and Turkish.
