Supreme Price Office was founded on the basis of a government decree no. 121/1939 Coll. dated 10 May 1939, less than two months after the establishment of the Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia. The intentions for its creation were in the line with a controlled economic model and to move away from the classical market regulation. The Supreme Price Office with its policy did markedly interfere in the prices of accommodation and catering which represent the core of tourism services. The start of the price regulation was associated with the beginning of the occupation of the Bohemian Lands in 1939. Keeping various facilities of the inns and hotels in consideration, the price regulation was the prerequisite of their categorization. During researched period, the Supreme Price Office with its policy and interventions in the tourism sector was able to keep the price stability for accommodation and catering services, and therefore their availability to a wider range of the consumers.
