The Czech Republic Keeps up with the Times and Accepts Bitcoins

The Czech Republic Keeps up with the Times and Accepts Bitcoins

We have selected a few places in the Czech Republic, where you can get a good meal, have a rest or even indulge in some sporting activity and pay for it in bitcoins. Progress can’t simply be stopped, so why not just enjoy it?

Bitcoins are a virtual currency used by increasing numbers of people worldwide. True, it has some disadvantages, but also some quite clear advantages. When travelling, it is definitely a big plus that you don’t have to look for an exchange office. Keeping this in mind we have chosen a few spots around the whole of the Czech Republic where in exchange for bitcoins you can buy delicious desserts, excellent coffee or an experience of a lifetime. For instance in Prague, Brno, Kutná Hora and many other places.

Relaxation in Třebíč

On your travels and wanders take a short break and treat your tired muscles to some relaxation or a pleasant massage. Why don’t you try the Léčivý dotek (Healing Touch) parlour in Třebíč, where you can have for example a bio-dynamic massage and settle your bill in bitcoins.  The parlour is smack bang in the centre of the historic town of Třebíč, a UNESCO listed site. Relaxed after the massage, you can pay a visit to the unique St. Procopius Basilica and Jewish Quarter.

Sport in Pardubice

A round of golf paid for in bitcoins can be enjoyed in the Golf Club in Pardubice, which has been accepting the virtual currency since the summer. This new payment method will undoubtedly be welcomed by fans of modern technologies and golf. Lovers of Renaissance architecture or sweet-smelling gingerbread should definitely visit the actual town of Pardubice, which by the way is associated with another type of sport – horseracing. Every year it holds the Velká Pardubická (Great Pardubice Steeplechase), the oldest cross country horse race on the continent. Not far from here lies the town of Kladruby, home to the oldest Czech horse breed –  Kladruber Old White Horse.

Spiritual Experience near Kutná Hora

Fancy an experience that is described by many as a turning point in life? Then set out towards Kutná Hora for dark therapy. You don’t need to have cash on you, because you can pay in bitcoins. Dark therapy is ever more popular and obviously you can undergo this treatment in other places too. However, here after your spiritual experience your appreciation of the magnificent Church of St. Barbara a listed World Heritage Site, may take you to a different dimension. The same can be said about the world-famous and somewhat eerie ossuary.

Coffee and Cake in Prague

Obviously, the largest number of places that accept bitcoins can be found in the Capital City of the Czech Republic. And since you can never get enough of tips for good coffee houses, we will share some of our ideas with you. One of the renowned establishments in Prague with an all-revealing name is Caffeine, which was among the pioneers enabling bitcoin payments in the Czech Republic. Situated near Stromovka Park lies Paralelní polis, a well-know place where people meet to bounce ideas around. Excellent cake, a cosy atmosphere and superb coffee can be had in the Alchymista Coffee House not far from Prague Castle.

If you wish to spend your saved up bitcoins on something a bit stronger, head for the National Theatre, where you can pop in to Bar no. 7, or to Krymská Street, where apart from groups of hipsters and fans of alternative culture you will also find the InCider bar specialising in ciders of all types.

When you run out of bitcoins …

…you can top up your balance at the Bitcoin ATMs. And where can you find them? There are some in Prague, one in Plzeň near the Science and Technology Park and also in Brno.
