Eastern Europe - currency

Postby cate_lee » Mon Jun 09, 2014 9:37 am

I know that Czech Republic, Poland, and Hungary all use their own currency rather than the Euro.

But I wonder how readily is the Euro accepted in these countries or not at all?

Especially with Hungary, as I'm only going to be there for less than one day, I wonder if I can get away with only having Euros and not need to exchange for Forint.

Hey cate _ Lee

I am doing the best of Eastern Europe trip. By the countries you have listed, I assume you are doing the same.

I am only bringing euros and a small amount of US for as emergency fund. I spoke to someone you took the same trip on the forum who stated he was fine with just euros because the guide brought them to a place with great rates every time they entered a new country. We also suggested how much to convert. He also said when we left one country and entered another he sold the old currency left over right away.

Hope this helps
