Ordering Czech koruna

Whether you’re a lover of goulash, a bohemian buff, or just enjoy wandering around a historical town or two, the Czech Republic boasts a unique culture that deserves to be explored by its visitors.

Exploring the Czech Republic

Home to storybook castles, quaint little towns, and delicious cuisine, there’s so much to experience in the Czech Republic.

From the cobblestone streets of Prague to the picturesque landscapes of Bohemia and beyond, it’s no wonder some refer to the country as the heart and soul of Central Europe.

Now, let's talk about food – a vital part of Czech culture. Indulge in hearty Czech dishes like svíčková (marinated beef with a creamy sauce) and trdelník (a deliciously sweet pastry). Some Czech sellers and vendors may prefer cash payments, so it’s good to plan ahead and buy your Czech koruna before your trip.

Sell your leftover Czech koruna

When you’re back from your trip to the land of a Hundred Spires, be sure to sell your leftover koruna for a great buyback rate. Stop by a John Lewis Bureau de Change in person with a valid form of ID and your banknotes.

Returns and buybacks can only be made in-store. A valid form of ID will be required.
