The Slovak Republic joined the Euro-zone as of January 1, 2009, the Euro is therefore the official currency. The Slovak crown (or slovenska koruna) remained in circulation only through January 16, 2009.
The official conversion rate between the Slovak crown and Euro is 30.126 crowns per one euro.
The Euro came in bills of EUR 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200 and 500 and coins of EUR 1, 2 and 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 cents (euro cents).
Slovak currency use to consisted of notes of SKK 5000, 1000, 500, 200, 100, 50 and 20.
Getting change for an EUR 100 bill and higher may be difficult in smaller shops.
Mastercard and Visa payment cards are widely accepted (both signature-based and with PIN-number), Diners Club is widespread, American Express a little less so. Money can be exchanged at a variety of foreign exchange counters (generally safe), at banks (fees vary). Street transactions are extremely risky.
