Czech Crown Currency Conversion Exchange Rate & Tips

  • The Czech Republic started the new Czech Koruna (Kc or CZK) on the 8th of February 1993 when it replaced the old Czechoslovak Koruna from the communist era.
  • The word Koruna means in English Crown.
  • The ISO 4217 code of the Czech Crown is CZK and the local acronym is Kc.
  • One koruna equals 100 haleru (abbreviated as "h", singular: haler, nominative plural: halere).
  • The coins are: 1 Kč, 2 Kč, 5 Kč, 10 Kč, 20 Kč, 50 Kč  Check how the coins look like.
  • And the banknotes are: 50 Kč, 100 Kč, 200 Kč, 500 Kč, 1000 Kč, 2000 Kč, 5000 Kč  See also the banknotes.
  • The value of 1 EUR is around 24 CZK and the USD is worth 17 CZK
  • In Prague the best currency to use for paying is the Czech Koruna, many shops and restaurants welcome the Euro, but they may overcharge for the exchange rates.
  • So better to exchange Euros or USD into Czech Koruna in an exchange office or at the bank upon arrival, many exchange points are in the Wenceslas Square and around the Old Town. Carefully with their commission rates, most of them show 0% commission but then they may charge an extra commission, so better to ask firmly for the exact amount that one will get.
  • It's advised to avoid changing money on the street, some guys are offering such service but it usually turns into a theft.
  • It's also recommended to exchange in small amounts depending on expenses and not to carry big amounts of cash.
  • Using the credit card to withdraw money from the ATM cash machine or paying with the credit card is also possible almost in all shops and restaurants, but then again the bank exchange rate may be deceptive.
