Flights to Prague

Czech Republic The Liberec snow

 

Cost of Living Prague

Prague is cheaper than Western Europe in terms of food and drink in common shops and restaurants. The beer and wine here in typical pubs is cheaper as well. The prices of clothes and other types of consumer goods is quite similar to other cities in Europe, however.

 

Czech Currency

The official currency of the Czech Republic is the Czech Crowns (koruna). The international abbreviation for the Czech Crown is CZK. The approximate value of 100CZK is around 5 USD / 4 EUR.

 

The Czech Crown is the best and often the only possible currency to use when paying. Even though the Czech Republic is part of the European Union, the euro is not often accepted here yet. Some stores, restaurants and hotels accept payments in euros but the exchange rate is usually not too good.

 

Prague Money Exchange Tips

  • Always change money in the ATM’s if you would like to get the best exchange rate and are the most convenient way to get Czech Crowns
  • Also, please be careful when using the exchange offices/booths here in the Czech Republic (especially Prague) because you might end up paying a super high commission or getting a bad rate without even knowing it.
  • Another one of our tips is DO NOT CARRY LARGE AMOUNT OF CASH WITH YOU. It is better and much safer to carry around a credit card and to just take money out of a cash machine as you walk around the city. In Prague it is also popular to use your card to make payments therefore major credit cards are accepted in most locations around Prague.
  • And last one, please always try to pay in Czech Crowns. We are aware that Euros are accepted at companies such as the Tesco department store, some restaurants, and other places however the exchange rate is usually very poor. If you pay in Euros, you will receive your change in Czech Crowns.

Train trip to Krakow

Last weekend, I’ve decided to make a small trip to the beautiful Polish city – Krakow. I’ve read an article about this place on the internet, and I’ve really liked the photos, so the decision was made quite fast. I’ve booked a room in a small pension, not far from the city center and I began to consider the possibilities of travelling there. My first option was to go by car. But I’m quite lazy, so the vision of 6+ hours behind the wheel was unthinkable. Second option was to go by train. I’ve alway enjoyed travelling by train, so this seemed to bet he right way for me. I‘ve bought a first class train ticket on Train Tickets Europe for the Czech high speed train – Pendolino to Ostrava and from there, I’ve bought another ticket for train of some small company. For the Pendolino train, it was neccessary to buy a seat reservation as well, so I’ve chosed a seat by the Windows, with a table in front of me. Friday at 14:56 my jurney became. When I’ve arrived at the station, the train was already there, and when I entered it, the train stevard lead me to my place, which was really nice of him, because I was terrified of walking through whole train, just to find my place. The seat was really large and comfortable and also the table was in the right distance for me to fold my legs comfortably (I am quite tall, so it was a really pleasant surprise) . When the train began to

move, I almost haven’t recognized it, how quite it was! After some time the cundoctor have arrived to check my tickets, he was polite and have answered all my stupid questions, such as where are the toillets etc. When we wer in the of the way, I was offerred some cold food and a drink menu. I’ve chosed a tuna sandwich and coffee, both was good and for a reasonable price. The Pendolino train was awesomely fast and all the way was calm and pleasant. I’ve had a possibility to charge my laptop, which later proved useful, the socekt was right next to my seat. We have arrived to Ostrava right on time without any delay, so after this expereince I really must recomend travelling by train!

Choose some interesting destination on Train tickets Europe and buy a tickets for the very best price available!

Next time, look forward to the continuation of the story of my trip to Krakow!
