Till Receipt from a Tesco Store in the Czech Republic

Till Receipt from a Czech Tesco

The currency in the Czech Republic is the Koruna. There’s nothing smaller than one Koruna (1 Kč) but many stores and supermarkets have prices that contain fractions. If you do a big shop these can add up to a few extra Koruna.

In the example above, the total cost of my shopping was 382, 88 Kč. It was rounded up and I actually paid 383 Kč. If the cost had been less than half a Koruna it would have been rounded down to 383 Kč. The Czech republic is not the only country that has a system like this.
