Hungarian and Czech Money
- 3 responses so far
Im not sure about Hungary but Czech Republic is CHEAP! They use the Czech Crown which is approx. 1 Euro = 25 Crown.
I can’t remember much about exact cost of things other than alcohol hahaha. I remember, and it’s amazing I remember this (Prague Pub Crawl is Amazing), the cheapest beer at the bar was something like 28 Crown. The general rule of thumb with Europe is that the further East you go the cheaper ‘things’ are. You could easily survive comfortably on the same daily budget you’d use in the other countries, in Prague. If anything you get more for your money.
Great! thanks for your advice.
I thought Prague would be quite cheap but found it wasn’t much different to the rest of Europe. If you have Euro from your other countries still left over you don’t have to change them over – most places will let you pay in Euro but will give you the change in local currency – this probably isn’t the best as I did this and it is very hard to tell if you are getting the right amount of change because of the different currencies, I have a feeling they rip off the tourists a little on the change they give! But if you don’t have any other currency on you it can be good to get by.
