Cashing in on the koruna

The koruna as we know it was introduced in 1993 when the Czech Republic became an independent state. Before this, the national currency was the Czechoslovak koruna. Each single koruna consists of 100 haléru, but as of 2008, the haléru coins are no longer in circulation.

In restaurants, a service charge is normally added onto your bill, but if not, Czech etiquette means you might want to leave around 10-15% of your bill as a tip. It is typical to give your tip directly to the waiter or waitress.

Commonly used banknotes

There are six notes that are common in the Czech Republic, to the value of 100, 200, 500, 1,000, 2,000 and 5,000 CZK. Each of these depicts a famous Czech figure, including the Holy Roman Emperor, Charles IV, who features on the 100 koruna note.
