Is the Czech Republic Koruny still used in the Czech Republic?

I thought they were members of the EU already.

The koruna is still the official currency of the Czech Republic. Though they joined the EU in 2004, the currency has not been converted over yet. Don't know what the anticipated date of conversion is but it does take a bit of time for that to occur.

There is no corollary between membership of the EU and adoption of the Euro.
The U.K, Denmark & Sweden who are members have not adopted it and Andorra, Monaco & The Vatican City which are not members of the EU have.

the Czech Republic has joined the euro group for banking and international finance, but on the retail level they are still using the koruna.

You should get down on your knees and thank Gucci that the Czech Republic still uses the koruna. If CR was using the euro, none of us Americans would be able to afford to eat at places like Le Perle or David because of the horrid exchange rate. You can get a good meal in Prague for $10. You can't do that in London or Paris, sweetie.
