Salary comparisons are tricky because salary depends not only on skillset and experience, but also on location, industry sector, platform (mainframe, win32, *nix), and the prevailing market trend. Complicating further is the sometimes significant difference between advertised and paid salary.

Having said all that, the national average salary paid for a "Senior Programmer" in the UK is 35,3541. After tax and NI that would give a monthly take-home of 2,149 according to this tax calculator. That's 3,156 Euros.

This might seem a lot (and maybe it is) but another factor is the cost of living. For example, rent of a luxury two bedroom unfurnished apartment (per month) in London is 1,700 but only (ha!) 757 in Prague2.
