Žena a život is a lifestyle magazine for women aged between 25 and 45 that is one of the few publications on the Czech market able to combine elements of global trends with Czech reality in areas such as fashion, cosmetics, cooking and home decoration. A considerable part of the magazine is also dedicated to interviews with prominent personalities and experts on a variety of topics (relationships, sex, careers, children etc,). Its huge popularity among its readers is based on the simple concept of original features and articles that try to map out the modern lives of modern women with the help of some true stories. Regular supplements featuring recipes, slimming trends and so on are also an inherent part of the magazine.
The magazine was voted Magazine of the Year in 2005 and 2007 by the Czech Publishers Association.
Each year Žena a život organises a competition for new ladies’ and gents’ fragrances entitled “Vůně roku” (Fragrance of the Year).
