The official currency of the Czech Republic is the koruna which is abbreviated to CZK; however in English Czech currency is sometimes referred to as the ‘Czech crown’.
As a member of the EU, the Czech Republic is legally-bound to adopt the use of the euro in the future. The planned transition of the koruna to the euro was set for 2010, but was postponed due to low popularity, with only 16% of Czech Republic citizens favouring the introduction of the euro.
1 Koruna is divided into 100 haleru, with the most popular bills being the 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000 and 5000 notes.
What to spend your Czech Koruna on:
Entry to Toronto Skypod
3-mile taxi ride
Postcard and a stamp
Bottle of water

Are credit cards widely accepted in the Czech Republic?
Visa, Mastercard/Eurocard, Maestro and American Express are widely accepted by hotels, international stores and established restaurants within the Czech Republic; however cash is still king almost everywhere else.

Love the Online convenience, however......
Love that we are able to order travel cash online, be able to see when it would be delivered to a convenient location of choice. However, I just think that it is missing the ability to be able to choose between having mostly small or large denominations (or mixed for that matter) during the transaction, which is something that one can request for ONLY by missing the stores.K.

Everything was ready to collect and there was no issues in the currency being handed over. They even provided a plastic envelope for the carriage of the notes due to the large amount that was collected. These guys are fantastic!Kristy
