The Currency of Czech Republic. Currency exchange in Prague/Czech Republic. How much money to take to Czech Republic?

Before you travel to the Czech Republic in front of each stands one of the most important questions: "What is the currency in the Czech Republic?". And for good reason this question worries many. Although the Czech Republic is in the EU, the country is not part of the Eurozone and therefore the currency of Czech Republic is not the Euro, which can be bought at any Bank at home.

Based on the foregoing, the tourists have a few more questions: "What currency to take with him to the Czech Republic/Prague?", "Where in the Czech Republic/Prague currency exchange? and, "How much money to take to Czech Republic (Prague and other cities in the country)?".

This article will answer in order to all the above questions and give some practical advice!

The Currency Of Czech Republic! What currency to take with you to the Czech Republic?

Currency and monetary unit of the Czech Republic is the Czech crown/ceska Koruna (CZK, Kč). In circulation banknotes in denominations of 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000 and 5000 CZK, coins of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50.

Czech Crowns - the currency of the Czech Republic

To pay in the Czech Republic the most profitable Czech crowns, although almost all tourist spots, for example, in the centre of Prague, Karlovy vary and other cities, also accepts Euros. But outset, to pay with Euros in the Czech Republic is EXTREMELY PROFITABLE!!! Paying in Euro, you pay, sometimes several times, here's an example: the entrance to a public toilet at the train station costs 10 kroner or 50 Euro cents, and in the city centre, 10 kroner or 1 Euro. The difference is palpable. Or another example, a classic Czech treat trdlo in CZK costs 60 CZK, EUR 2,5 €.

So, to bring to the Czech Republic in CZK is most advantageous. But since in our country they almost never find, though banks in some cities, for example, in Krasnodar, we have seen that under the order is possible to buy the crown, but this is the exception rather than the rule, and the course may be a disadvantage, that to carry with them to the Czech Republic/Prague better than euros or dollars. Suggest Euro exchange in the Czech Republic will be more profitable.

To be paid in the country accept both cash and Bank cards, except maybe some street stalls and small shops. Card it is better to have Euro or dollar, so to convert smaller losses.

Currency exchange in Czech Republic/Prague

In Czech banks and exchange offices are accepted for exchange as the Euro and us dollars and Russian rubles, and other currency - the yuan, the Australian and canadian dollars, Polish zloty, etc.

Exchange Euro to Czech crown is the most profitable in exchange offices, those in Massa at every step. Most of the offices do not charge a fee, look for those with the sign 0% Commission.

For personal calm and security before the exchange suggest to follow a few simple rules:

1. Primarily without haste and bustle, do the math yourself, what amount of CZK after the exchange you should get your hands on.

2. Ask the worker of the exchange office: "How many crowns will I get for 100 Euros?", it should calculate and show you on your calculator.

3. If it shows the cashier the amount is the same as the rate on the sign in the exchanger and it suits you, feel free to exchange.

4. Without departing from the window of the exchange office, despite the fact that you are already all gathered, carefully count received from cashier amount and only after make sure that it is correct, leave it.

Exchangers easy to learn the signs CHANGE.

CHANGE-exchange offices in the Czech Republic

Exchange rate in exchange offices in the tourist cities unprofitable. It is best to leave for a couple of blocks from the centre of town and look there. For example, in the historical centre of Prague we met the exchangers, the rate of which was just extortionate - 16 CZK for 1 Euro.

The best exchanger in Prague we found in walking distance from the old town, in Jindřišská street, the landmark St. Wenceslas square, behind the Albert supermarket on the same side, then pass a flower shop, restaurant Nagrilu and on the first floor of the house will be here this exchange with a red sign

Banks also exchange currency, but always take a Commission, and quite impressive, sometimes reaching up to 150 CZK, regardless of the amount exchanged. We therefore banks do not exchange and do not advise.

Also I do not advise to exchange currency at the money changers on the street, although the rate they can offer and seductive, but you can cheat easily, for example, to give less currency is Czech crowns, or get another cheaper, but similar to the canopy of the currency.

It is better to exchange small amounts. Of course, the amount depends on needs, but to expect it is desirable so that by the end of the vacation left crowns in his pocket. Home what to do with them? If the crown still remained in the same exchange points you can exchange them back to euros, dollars or any other currency.

Where is more profitable to exchange currency in Prague or other cities in Czech Republic?

There isn't much difference. But in Prague exchangers and more, and that means you can find the best bol course.

For example, if you compare the exchanger (that we found) in Prague and offices in Karlovy vary, in Prague the exchange rate from euros to Czech koruny was profitable almost 4.5 rubles each Euro.

Attention! All calculations are approximate. Exchange rates are constantly changing, the situation at any time may change, so check the currency exchange rates immediately before the trip.

How much money to take to Czech Republic/Prague and other cities in the country?

A difficult question, all depends on the "appetite" of everyone. Prices in Czech Republic are certainly not as high as in neighbouring Germany or Austria, but higher than in Poland.

In Prague a great dinner for two with Beers will cost you around 700-1500 crowns. Coffee and pastries about 150-200 kronor for two. Soups from 50 to 80 CZK per portion. Beer from 30 to 65 CZK for a glass of 0.5 liters. Knuckle in the restaurant weighing 1300-1500 gram - 300-450 CZK. Street food is 50 CZK for 100 grams of garnish and 90 CZK for 100 grams of the shank. Sausages in a bun or with bread - 70 CZK. Trdlo classic - 60 CZK. Ice cream - CZK 30 per bulb. Shopping in the supermarket for Breakfast: two eco yogurt, apples, bananas, drinking water, biscuits - 100 - 150 CZK.

To eat at a restaurant in the tourist center of the city is more expensive than if you step a few blocks away. Also, things are beer, coffee and other viands.

If the hotel and tickets paid for in advance, then two, without experience, will be enough for 60-80 Euros a day. But once again, this question is highly individual better based on personal needs. The rest of the money you can always bring it home.
