Currencies Accepted

As the official currency, the Czech crown is the best and often the only possible currency to use when paying. Although the Czech Republic is part of the European Union, the Euro is not widely accepted here yet. Some stores, restaurants and hotels accept payments in euros but the exchange rate may not be the best.

Debit and credit cards are widely accepted in Czech Republic.
