Does město sound like menesto to anyone else?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VladaFu

It is pronounced [mňesto]. See Tips and Notes about the pronunciation of mě and mně.

to me it sounded a bit like "miesto" but i looked at the word bank and there was only "mesto"

town-city Is there any difference?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/VladaFu

City is bigger, I think it had to have a cathedral. In Czech we have just one word for both - město.

so "nice town" is inaccurate?

nice - pěkný, hezký
