Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic is a popular destination among travelers, especially for weekend trips. Prague is the fifth most popular city among tourists in Europe. In this article, we will answer the question of what currency to take to the Czech Republic. – In recent years, annual tourism revenues in the whole Czech Republic exceeded CZK 150 billion.
The currency in the Czech Republic is the Czech koruna, marked with the international code CZK. This monetary unit was formally introduced in 1993, although initially, after the collapse of Czechoslovakia, a monetary union and a common Czechoslovak crown was in force. However, it was withdrawn for economic reasons.
The Czech currency is currently worth around 0.42 SEK (Current exchange rate for Czech Koruna). The easiest and the most convenient rate for quickly converting prices from Swedish Crowns to Czech Crowns is to note that 100 SEK is approximately 250 CZK. (1 SEK = 2.381 CZK as of 2019-11-20)
The Czech koruna is divided into 100 hellers, but coins with denominations smaller than one Czech koruna were withdrawn from circulation in 2009. Currently available denominations of the Czech koruna notes are 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000 and 5000.
The most popular banknotes in circulation are 500 CZK and 1000 CZK. Of course, with smaller payments, smaller denominations such as 100 or 200 crowns are more convenient. In addition, it is worth remembering that previously CZK 20 and CZK 50 banknotes were in circulation – they were replaced with coins.
The share of counterfeits of the Czech crown in circulation is negligible and you do not have to be afraid of receiving a fake banknote. If in doubt, check the watermark on the left side of the banknote and the security thread that shifts color depending on the viewing angle and appears like a line when viewed against the light. There is also a special symbol, consisting of the letters “ČR”, located to the right of the banknote denomination, which must be perfectly filled against the light.
