Czech currency is called koruna, abbreviated CZK. For 1 EUR you get approx. 25 CZK. For 1 USD you get approx. 24 CZK. There are lots of currency exchanges offices in the city centre, however, proceed with caution. Credit cards (Visa and Mastercard) are widely accepted, usually even in small shops.


230 V, 50 Hz. Plugs of type C and E (also compatible with type F).

Tap water

Should be safe to drink, but you can confirm that at your hotel.


Tips are (usually) not included in the final price. There are no strict rules concerning tipping, but 10% is considered appropriate in a restaurant, café or a bar. The total price is usually expected to be rounded up.


The streets of Prague are safe. You should however exercise standard caution, as you would do in any large city especially around the very crowded areas. In the case of an emergency, dial the all-purpose emergency number 112.


Most (younger) people speak English to some degree. All shops/restaurants in the city centre should have someone with decent English (or German).


Public transportation is very well developed, and we recommend using the metro and trams to get around. There are several variants of the tickets in Prague: 30 minutes (30 CZK), 90 minutes (40 CZK), 24 hours (120 CZK), and 72 hours (330 CZK). You can buy tickets all around the Prague. Please keep in mind you have to validate the ticket (stamp in the yellow box)!


We recommend booking your taxi online (through your favourite app) or through your hotel, as to avoid any misunderstandings. Try to avoid getting a taxi on the street and if you have to, determine the price in advance.
