Czech Republic - Currency and Cost of Living
The importation or exportation of CZK 200,000 or more (or foreign currency equivalent to that amount) must be declared to and authorized by Czech financial authorities.
The Czech Koruna was issued in 1993 and replaced the notes of Czechoslovakia.

Estimated cost of a decent restaurant meal for two in Italy (including wine): Euro 80.00
Estimated cost of an equivalent restaurant meal for two in Prague: Euro 40.00
Estimated cost of a similar restaurant meal for two in a Czech provincial town: Euro 25.00
The two most expensive aspects of life in Prague are the cost of rental housing (which is in relatively short supply) and mobile telephone use. Rents are still significantly less expensive than in comparable western European cities.
