    It’s the Czech Crown. I went over Christmas and 15 Crown was equivalent to about $1 Australian.

    yeah prague turned out to be one of the cheapest places i went to (just came back from the euro vista). shopping was cheap, and so was going out at night!

    Yes, much cheaper than countries who use the Euro.

    I had to buy a few things on my last trip (because my luggage got lost and I needed clothes) – went to H&M there, in Austria and Germany and in definitely worked out cheaper in Prague.

    The other thing is that food is very substantial (hearty) and reasonably priced. We managed to get a pint of beer (500ml) for $AUD1.60!
