You know that feeling, when you arrive to new city and don’t have a clue, how to get to the hostel.
The easiest is to take a taxi right? But be cautious, this can get kinda tricky really fast. Prague is a beautiful city, but it has it issues. One of them are definitely taxis. Most of the taxi drivers are honest, but a small part of them will try to get your money by overpricing the ride.
Beware of taking taxis, which stand in tourist locations (Old Town square etc.), next to clubs and so on. If you catch a taxi on the street, the maximum price is 27 CZK/km. My tip is to use taxi applications.
Do you want to change your normal money for some weird looking monopoly money? Our funny looking money is called Koruny (Crowns). In lot of places you can pay with Euro, but you usually don’t get good rate.
Two very important tips for changing money.
- Never, never, never change money, sorry, 1 more time never, change your money on the street. You will end up with Belarusian money with almost no value
- Lot of exchanges have extremely bad rates, that includes the ones that are on Prague Airport. Every time check the ticket they give you! The rate is 1 €=27 CZK, so don’t let yourself end up with half. Just on the corner, next to the hostel is one of the exchanges in Prague.
