Prague Airport ATM Small Change

Hello. I'd planned to get Czech currency from a cash machine at the airport and then take the bus into the city center next week. But if the denomination of the crowns dispensed are too large to take to the newsstand to purchase a bus ticket, is there a convenient place to break it down into smaller bills?

Thanks in advance for any guidance.

the smallest denomination you can get is 100 crowns...so take an odd amount i.e. 2800. or 2900....what you'll get is small enough to take to the transport kiosk.

And if that isn't enough small change, just stop at a convenience store, buy a bottled drink, and pay with a larger bill. You'll get change.

They'll give you change, eventually, after a bit of unnecessary huffing and puffing. They have an obsession with hoarding it, make the brutes suffer :)

I think that if you are taking a bus from the airport, that the mass transit has a counter in the terminal, where you should be able to buy tickets even with larger bills.
