I plan to visit Prague, Karlovy Vary, and Cesky Krumlov.
I would like to know, what is the cheapest mode of transportation in the Czech Republic? Also, when will the Czech Republic convert it's currency to the Euro, if at all? I assume this might affect travel expenses for tourists in the near future.
Region: Central Bohemia
Country: Czech Republic
Coach (Letuska is the one I prefer) to KV is cheap and quicker than the train - if you go to CK leave very early or stay overnight would be my advice .. there are loads of trips organised in Prague to both places .. I can also recommend a Pension in KV.
Czech is slated to enter the Euro in 2012 - I have no idea if this will actually happen at that point - so not the near future
The bus services are usually very good, and cheaper than the trains though you'd need to make sure you book a seat as they can get busy - especially to places like KV and CK.
You can use a company like Cedok (
As far as the Euro is concerned, well I wouldn't worry about that as the latest date I heard being proposed for Euro adoption is 2015!!
I think that Jamie has answered your questions very well.
All I would like to say is that you have chosen an excellent country to visit and your selection of towns very good.
CZ converting to the Euro is in my opinion many years away yet. I won't get into politics :) If you need to convert some cash when you are in Prague I can recommend an Exchange place. Be careful they vary greatly in their rates.
If you look at my profile I have some information that might be of interest to you and you have inspired me to add my Exchange recommendation to the profile soon.
Kind regards and enjoy your visit.
