BANK, CURRENCY, CREDIT CARDS
The official currency of the Czech Republic is the Czech Crown (koruna), abbreviated as Kč, with the international abbreviation CZK. The current exchange rate can be found at the official website of the Czech National Bank. Sometimes it is also possible to pay with Euros (Hotels in the centre of Prague, McDonalds, KFC, Marks & Spencer - also accepts British pounds, Albert and Billa supermarkets, etc.), but the exchange rate may be slightly unfavourable and change is almost always given only in Kč. In Prague, especially around tourist sights, there are plenty of Exchange offices with very bad rates. Best rates are found around Main Railway Station (Hlavní nádraží) - exit the station, left across the park, to street "Politických vězňů". Threre are about 5 offices, mostly arab-owned, and offer very good rates even for smaller amounts, and even better or negotiable for higher (over 1000 EUR, USD or such).
The approximate value of 100 CZK is 4 EUR. An easy way to do the calculation is to divide the prices in CZK by 100 (throw the last 2 digits) and multiply the result by 4.
"The electricity supply in Czech Republic is 230 V AC (50 Hz)". In Czech Republic the most commonly used plug is the "schuko plug" (Type F)
