Hi all :-)
Simples ... I am off to Prague in augut for the 1st time and read quite a few bad stories when it comes to changing money out there so I thought id change it before I go....

Rates are crazy mind 20 squids gives you 560 czech koruna which brings me to my next query....

Would that be enough for 2 days in prague ?

Any input is welcome :-)

Hi! Depends on what you want (need) to buy for that :-)
If you have your hotel room and food paid, then no problem.
If not, I would take a bit more ;-) Dont know what you want
to buy, so just generally you can count with:
* from 500CZK per night per person
* about 100CZK per lunch
* 75 minut transfer public transp. ticket 26CZK

If you'll have any other particular question, let us know.

Well, it depends. I definitely wouldnt exchange money in the street. But if you use some exchange office or a bank, there is almost no chance youd get fake money...

Anyway, wish you a great time in Prague!

I found it surprisingly easy to exchange various currencies into korunas in Prague actually, the exchange offices are pretty well labelled and the money they gave me was perfectly legitamite tongue.gif Also I didn't find Prague particularly expensive, although I was there on slightly less than normal circumstances..
