The bureaux de change (currency exchanges) are very easy to find: in the city center, at the Prague airport, at the main train stations and at the main bus stations. The credit cards Visa and Mastercard are also accepted in many of Prague's shops, hotels and restaurants.
Tip: Don’t forget that smoking is not allowed in public places (public transport access points - stops, train stations, transport, cultural institutions, health facilities) in the Czech Republic.
