Countdown to Euro Changeover on the1th of January

04. November 2010

There are just a few weeks left before Estonia switches to using the EU's common currency, the euro.

Specialized kroon-euro calculators have now been sent to all the nation's households to help  residents prepare for the January 1 changeover. The pending euro adoption is being enthusiastically anticipated by the travel sector, since it will eliminate the need of many visitors to exchange their currency when arriving in Estonia, and will mean that prices will be more easily understandable to those unfamiliar with the Estonian kroon.
