Cash machines (ATMs) in Prague
The best exchange rate is usually obtained by withdrawing Czech Crowns from the cash machine (ATM) of a bank in Prague, even accounting for any transaction fees that your home bank may charge. Cash machines in Prague accept debit and credit cards backed by Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Maestro.
As in most of Northern and Central Europe, the electricity supply in Prague is 230v. Electrical sockets take standard European two-pin plugs. British, North American and other tourists should bring adaptors. In Prague, adaptors can be purchased at Tesco or at Euronics at Palladium Shopping Centre.
The Prague public transport network is cheap, efficient and highly integrated. Public transportation runs frequently during the day and at night, and a single ticket permits travel on trams, buses and the Prague Metro.
