The koruna (sign: Kč; code: CZK) is the currency of the Czech Republic since 1993, and in English it is sometimes referred to as Czech crown. The koruna is one of European Union's 11 currencies, and the Czech Republic is legally bound to adopt the euro currency in the future. The official name in Czech is koruna česká (plural koruny české, though the zero-grade genitive plural form korun českých is used on banknotes and coins of value 5 Kč or higher). The ISO 4217 code is CZK and the local acronym is Kč, which is placed after the numeric value (e.g., "50 Kč") or sometimes before it (as is seen on the 10-koruna coin). One koruna equals 100 haléřů (abbreviated as "h", singular: haléř, nominative plural: haléře, genitive plural: haléřů – used with numbers higher or equal to 5 – e.g. 3 haléře, 8 haléřů), but haléře have been withdrawn, and the smallest unit of physical currency is 1 Kč.
The coin, manufactured to celebrate 100 years of Czech Koruna as an official currency. 133 kg of the pure gold with value of 100.000.000 Kc (4 million Euro). Presented on exhibition in Prague. #prague #czechkoruna #gold #currency
Without the local #currency #CzechKoruna, one cannot fully enjoy any destination one travels to. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
My trick with all our travel is to always change less than £50 at any local currency exchange. This is to ensure one has some local change in case one has to do anything that requires physical money. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
All other payments are made using UK bank cards. I find @StarlingBank or @monzo best suited for payments abroad. Instant notifications of transactions, conversations and great rates. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I usually do not carry my wallet around, so use of my phone to make all payments is a most, #ApplePay is the life saver here. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The assumption to the above tips is one is travelling to a country that utilises contactless payment heavily. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

The Czech currency came under sustained upward pressure in the middle of January, as investors piled in on bets that faster inflation would spur the central bank to abandon a cap that has kept a lid on the koruna for the past three years.
