46 – Trails of the Czech koruna

As Apple Pay and the likes grow in popularity, it is perhaps true that we handle our country’s banknotes less than we used to, nevertheless, these bills, often issued by one central bank, remain an important feature of a nation’s identity. Likewise, those honoured on the banknotes are commemorated for accomplishments which have contributed to the creation of their nation: the nature of their deeds, as well as the domains they represent, often give us insight into the things to which a country assigns value.
Since the withdrawal of the 20 koruna note in 2008 and the 50Kč banknote in 2011, the Czech Republic’s currency; the koruna, or crown, consists of banknotes worth 100Kč, 200Kč, 500Kč, 1000Kč, 2000Kč and 5000Kč and showcases an admirable range of individuals and disciplines ranging from an opera singer, a philosopher and statesman, a teacher, a novelist, a historian and politician, and a king!

I have concocted the following six beautiful hiking trails by zooming in on one fragment of the life or work of each person, commemorated on the banknotes.
