currency for Eastern Europe

Jump to last reply

We are leaving in 5 weeks for our trip to Europe. I like to have some cash on hand to pay for cabs, tips etc until I can get to a cash machine. I know that many dont think it necessary to do so, just get upon arrival, but I always like to have some 'just in case'.

I was going to go to my bank tomorrow to order some local cash, but wanted to ask first what is necessary.

We start in Prague, so we were going to bring $200 worth of Czech Koruna. Then to Poland so was going to have $200 of Polish Zloty. Not sure where we are heading from there, perhaps Hungary, Romania Albania, Macadonia?? Not sure.

We will be in Croatia and Italy and Spain for sure.
I was also going to get a few hundred of Euros.

Will the Euros work in Eastern Europe in a pinch? I know that in Italy and Spain they will be fine,

Thanks for any help.
