Just for a rough idea.
This is a very broad question. Each region/country would have rates tailored to the strength of their markets. Then after that you come down to level of experience tier. Which region are you specifically referring to, then?

Ideally Czech Republic, but even other countries. I am just curious.

It also depends on the nature of the project and its overall budget. The same Director of Photography will charge less for a corporate video than a commercial to be broadcasted nationally. That being said, if the project is very appealing, e.g. a great low budget indie script, one may be able to attract great crew members for far less than their usual rates.

It's going to be excessively difficult to find good answers to this question, however in my experience, here are some Midwest America rates:
Director/Producer/Sound Op: $600-800/day
DPs really range far, depending on rentals, gear, experience, but could range from $500-800 (or more)
Jib rental with op: $1000/day
Hope that helps with general starting points.

NY commercial non union rates
camera operator: 800-1600
video/photo assistant: 350-500
is a good starting point
