RE: Funny Money from Czechoslovakia - The Most Beautiful Banknotes
I don't remember exact worh of 1USD, but I think it was something aroun 30 crowns in 1993. Today it is 21-22 crowns.
If you were lucky enough and you could buy the new car from Škoda, you spent 90k Crowns in '90s and it was 180 pcs of 500 crown banknotes. The cheapest Škoda Fabia start somewhere 330k today, so you need only 66 psc of 5000CZK bills. But I think nobody pays new car in cash ;)
We are quite dependent on the Euro, but I hope we will keep Czech crowns as long as it will be possible ;) I think the common currency could only work in similarly productive economies. It doesn't make sense to have same currency eg. in Germany and in Greece. Just my opinion ;)
