Czech airport insanely overpriced? / Je ruzynske letiste silene predrazene?

This is a recent receipt from one of the Czech restaurants at the Prague airport. The person had 2 Czech beers, 2 pretzels, and 2 goulash soups. The total was 618 Czech crowns or  $38.63.

Does that seem overpriced to you or would you say it’s an appropriate charge?

CZ: To to je ucet z jedne restaurace na ruzynskem letisti. Prijde vam to predrazene?

If you liked this post buy me a coffee! (Suggested:$3 a latte $8 for a pound) Thanks!

    That is ridiculous. My last visit in April, I saw a 1 liter bottle of water for 160Kc. – nearly $8. 🙁

    :((
    Someone commented on Facebook that the prices are actually comparable but the problem is the exchange rate at the airports that turns up the prices quite a bit.

    Tu polévku bych ještě pochopila, pokud byla opravdu hustá, z kvalitního masa a bylo jí hodně, ale to pivo je úplně absurdní.

    Ahoj, o letisti Ruzyn a cenach v tech provozovnach na nem se napsalo uz spousty, bohuzel zadna zmena. Ty ceny nejsou pochopitelny, je to zlodejna za bileho dne, bohuzel si je zduvodnuji vysokymi najmy, ktere se tam letisti plati.

    It is no worse than US airports. If you go outside the airport, you would see a big savings.

    Ahoj Tanja!

    I’m Australian but my mums side of the family is from the Czech Republic so my heart always has a piece of the country in me! I went to the Czech Republic last year in July and I must say I miss it so much! Your website helps me miss it less and help me even learn a bit more Czech with your translations. Don’t ever stop posting because your website rocks 🙂 Can I suggest for you to put up a couple of Czech language learing posts, just a few phrases that you seem are important? Oh and about the post, last year went I went to the country, the airport prices I though were a bit expensive as well!

    Totally understandable. Czech beer is priceless ;))
    It’s like American Express!

    Cena odpovida cenam na ostatnich letistich. Vsak McDonalds prodava zakladni burger vsude za stejnou cenu $1 – cca 20Kc? Tady v USA mi prijde nijak hrozne, zatimco v CR mi 20Kc prijde hodne. Rekla bych ze take zalezi na tom jak se cena letistniho jidla pomeri s prumernym platem.

    There are several tourist restaurants in the airport that charge ludicrous prices, but there is one airport restaurant, which has reasonable prices. It’s up the escalator past the executive lounges.

    Terezo, já do McDonald’s nechodím a netuším, jak velký a jaký je základní burger, ale 20 Kč mi vůbec nepřijde tak hrozné. Balené sendviče většinou stojí kolem 50 Kč. Taky si je nekupuju, ještě tak bagety, které jsou větší a stojí stejně. Pečivo s něčím masitým v pekárně běžně stojí kolem 15 Kč, někdy i víc, takže těch 20 Kč nevidím jako takový problém. Kdybych si takovou věc vůbec kupovala.

    V poměru k běžným restauračním cenám v ČR jsou ty letištní rozhodně moc; v obyčejné restauraci by to myslím stálo odhadem tak 150 Kč, takže se nedivím, že se lidi diví.
