    Hi Icedog!

    I live in UK now but I am from Czech Republic originally and I would recommend you to take Czech Koruna because it is still the main currency in Czech. There is not many places where you can use Euros. You can buy anything with Koruna, it is just easier for you.

    In Prague it is no problem to pay hotels, restaurants, most shops in Euro. This is easy if you come from the Euro zone.
    But otherwise you have to change your $$ to Kc.

    Best regards,

    The Euro is accepted in more stores nowadays, but you will not always get the best exchange rate. Prices are posted in Czech Crowns and you will receive change in Crowns.

    I think it is best to get your walking around money out in Crowns through an ATM machine.

    Hi icedog!

    I suggest you try posting your second question in a new topic. Questions added to an unrelated topic tend to get lost.
