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

Excellent service at Travelex Ballarat
The lady who manages Travelex in Ballarat, Australia,is extremely helpful. I have wanted specific denominations of currency, and after I purchase the funds online, I email her and ask for the denominations I want, and she arranges it for me. She is very pleasant and extremely co-operative.CK

Making the transaction on line was very easy and straight forward. I did call a kiosk to ask questions on what is the most effective way to obtain the best rate, and found that they didn't really know the Travelex products that well. It might be worthwhile making sure the assistant's are clear on the differences between cash rates, cards and simply pros and cons of making the transaction online versus f2f..Miryana
