AW: [Slovak-World] Changing to Euro
- Thats true the dual system starts in august and end after the 1st January
2009. But you can pay in euro and SKK till the end of 2009. The prices has
to assign in EURO in SKK till the end of 2009 and the natinal bank of
slovakia is bound to take SKK back till 2013.
The EURO has 5 EURO-Notes, 10 EURO-Notes, 20 EURO-Notes and so on and 2
EURO-coins, 1 EURO-coins, 50 EUR0-Cent, 20 EURO-Cent and so on.
I am from germany and I can tell nobody likes the EURO here, because
everything got so expensive. The german goverment told us 1 EURO should
worth 2 german marks. But this was a lie. 1 EURO is 1 german mark. Now
everyone has much less money than before and the prices for food getting
expensive more and more.

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.
