      Yes, Julie (_dve_).

      _Cent_ [tsent] (masc., hard pattern: 2 centy, 5 centov).

      Since Slovakia is surrounded by countries that aren't meeting the
      criteria, this will not be different any time soon for the Slovaks who
      mostly travel to Poland, Hungary, and the Czech R. When they joined
      the European Union in 2004, all three were saying they would adopt the
      euro by 2009-2010, but have failed. The current very tentative
      estimates are that they might meet the criteria to adopt the euro by:

      Poland - 2012
      Czech R. - 2012
      Hungary - 2014

      Only the Slovaks' second major summer destination, Greece, has the
      euro, and Austria and the countries west of it (except Switzerland).
