Although the official currency in Slovakia is the euro, Slovakia is one of the most inexpensive countries when it comes to tourist trips and sightseeing. Slovakia is a developed country where there is no shortage of ATMs, branches of international banks and exchange offices. We should also be able to pay by credit card without major problems. Only in smaller stores should you ask for a payment terminal before shopping. It is good to know that some ATMs may charge a commission regardless of the amount paid.
Is it expensive in Slovakia?
Not really, not compared to other eurozone countries. The most expensive city in Slovakia is the capital – Bratislava. This can also include several mountain resorts, especially in the winter season, when prices are very high there.
