CZK (Kč) Czech crown (česká koruna)
1 EUR = 26 CZK
1 USD = 23 CZK

It is necessary to change some amount of the Czech crowns (there is a possibility of exchange at the airport Prague, not in airport Ostrava), because in public transportations, taxi as well as in some small shops only Czech crowns are acceptable (without possibility to pay by card). Many shops, restaurants as well as tourist centres accept Euros. But you should not be surprised that particularly in shops any change returned will be in Czech crowns. Please use only official exchange offices.
