More about the Czech money - koruna.

Koruna paper money is part of the physical form of the Czech Republic's currency. A currency called the Krone in German and koruna in Czech was introduced in Austria-Hungary on 11 September 1892, as the first modern gold based currency in the area. In 1993, upon the dissolution of Czechoslovakia, the Czechoslovak Koruna was split into the Slovak Koruna and the Czech Koruna. The Czech money was instantly valued at considerably more than the Slovakian koruna and both currencies will be replaced with the Euro once their respective countries can meet the required economic criteria. Koruna has been fully convertible since 1995 and began to float in 1997.

Czech central bank

The Czech National Bank, ČNB, is the central bank and financial market supervisor in the Czech Republic with its headquarters in Prague. Česká národní banka was established in January 1993, after the dissolution of Czechoslovakia. As an independent institution, the Czech central bank maintains price stability, supervises the financial system and supports its balanced development, and ensures smooth circulation of money and smooth payments.

Like most central banks, the CNB focuses on stability of consumer prices. In practice, price stability does not literally mean unchanging prices, it means moderate growth in prices. The level of inflation corresponding to price stability should encompass the upward statistical deviations that arise in the measurement of inflation, and should also allow sufficient room for the small changes in relative prices that occur constantly in every economy with an effective price system. The goal of Czech central bank is to stabilize inflation around 2.0% per annum.
