20th EG/VGTC Conference on Visualization, 4.-8. June 2018, Brno, Czech Republic

General Information


The currency in Czech Republic is the Czech Crown (CZK). Exchange rate is approximately: 26CZK for 1€. Coins appear in denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50. Notes are available in denominations of 100, 200, 500, 1000, 2000 and 5000.

All major credit and debit cards are widely accepted at shops, hotels, banks and ATM machines. Euros are usually not accepted. Therefore, we recommend having some cash in Czech Crowns.

You can exchange cash in banks (usually some small fee is applied) or at exchange office (where exchange rates can vary) or use an ATM machine to withdraw – there are a lot of them in the city.

Electrical Power and Power Plug

The voltage in Czech Republic, as in most of Europe, is 230V/50 Hz. Czech Republic uses type C and type E sockets.
