Re: [Slovak-World] Changing to Euro
- Does anyone know anything more about Slovakia's change
to the Euro? I just heard that a dual system will
begin in August or Sept and then the Euro will be the
only currency after Jan 1, 2009.
My friend who told me joked everyone will need big
pockets as the Euro system has coins up thru the 10
Euro, not paper as everyone is used to there. So money
will be heavier.
Also be sure to get all your Slovak crowns out and
spend them or send them to relatives or friends in
Slovakia- likely banks will take them but only up to a
certain date - anyone know that date? Jan 1, 09? Or
will there be a grace period? Maybe the Aug to Jan
period is it!
Sad to say goodby to Slovakia's attractively designed
paper money. I know there may well be coins with
Slovakia on the back but somehow it won't be the same.
