About the currency
Coins and notes
The koruna was once divided into 100 haler (just like our cents) but hal coins have been out of use since 2008. So if anything has haler included in the price, it’ll be rounded to the nearest koruna.
Coins come in 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 Kč values, with banknotes going from 100, 200, 500, 1,000, 2,000 and 5,000 Kč increments.
Facts about the currency
- The koruna was introduced in 1993 when Czechoslovakia was split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia.
- What would you do if you had an old currency in circulation but needed to change it thanks to the formation of a new nation? Well the Czechs decided to just whack stickers over the values on their old banknotes to now label them as korunas. Hey, it got the job done.
- You’ll find the 100 Kč note is the most commonly used note. It’ll buy you all the basics like a coffee from a café, lunch from a café, or an afternoon snack from a café. (Look, they like their cafés here, OK?)
