Now that the Czech Rep. is joining the EU, are there any plans to adopt the Euro? Under the '''Buy''' section the czech crown (Kc) is listed the legal currency. However, many hotel listings on the pages already, and a few hotel websites, give rates in Euro. Should we be converting these to Kc? My personal feeling is that we should be displaying prices in the currency travellers will be using to pay, regardless of how well known it is, but I don't know whether both are in use in CR at the moment.

Hm, contrary to the opinion of the earlier editor I very much liked the Budweiser Budvar beer. I made the language more neutral; it may be a matter of taste. On the other hand I found Velkopopovicky Kozel to be the only Czech beer I actively disliked. -- Infrogmation 14:05, 2 Jun 2004 (EDT)

Didn't like Kozel??? How is it possible =), Although, I can second also liking Budvar. Aburda 05:09, 7 Jul 2005 (EDT)

Kozel is great, both svetly and dark beer

Budvar is to sweet for my taste

Train Schedule from main page

The below was removed from the main article because a schedule is not the best information to have in the article due to the fact that it may change. What would be better is to have a few paragraphs explaining the possibilities along major routes. -- Ilkirk 15:16, 4 Nov 2005 (EST)

A piece of advice about what is not so polite to say in the CR

Please don't use the term "Eastern Europe" or generally "East" for the Czech Republic. For first we are not (and with one, 40-years period exception, we've never been) an Eastern country. It is very arrogant and inpolite to say that to the Czechs. For second, don't say to people that everything is quite cheap here, they know it well too, that in the West everything is more expensive - you can present yourself as an "arrogant westerner" again.

I think you will enjoy our country very much, especially if you would follow that advice :)

Currency?

Now that the Czech Rep. is joining the EU, are there any plans to adopt the Euro? Under the Buy section the czech crown (Kc) is listed the legal currency. However, many hotel listings on the pages already, and a few hotel websites, give rates in Euro. Should we be converting these to Kc? My personal feeling is that we should be displaying prices in the currency travellers will be using to pay, regardless of how well known it is, but I don't know whether both are in use in CR at the moment.
