Planning your storybook holiday to the Czech Republic? Dreaming of chateaux’s, castles and cathedrals? How about strolling the streets of Prague’s Old Town or visiting the Pilsner Urquell Brewery in Pilsen? No matter whether you have Prague Castle, the subterranean ossuary at Sedlec or a spa experience in Karlovy Vary on your itinerary, you will need some Koruna for your holiday, so let us help you organise this for you!
The Czech Republic, while part of the European Union, has not yet adopted the Euro as its currency, and it still uses its own currency – the Koruna, or Crown. The Koruna is subdivided into 100 haler, but hal coins have been out of use since 2008. If you see haler incorporated into prices, you will find the price is rounded off to the nearest Crown value.
There are no import or export restrictions on local or foreign currency if you are arriving from, or travelling to, another EU member state. If you have arrived in the Czech Republic (or are going to) from a country outside of the EU, all amounts of EUR 10,000 (or equivalent) must be declared upon arrival or exit.
