are still incorporated into merchandise prices. The final price
is always rounded off to the nearest crown value.

As the official currency, the Czech
crown is the best and often the only possible currency
to use when paying. Although the Czech Republic
is part of the European Union, the euro is not widely accepted
here yet. Some stores, restaurants and hotels accept payments
in euros but the exchange rate may not be very good.
