Welcome to the Euroweb!
On 1 January 2011, Estonia changes over to the euro, the single European currency. During the first two weeks of
2011, kroons and euros were equally acceptable means of payment. From 15 January 2011 the only valid currency in
Estonia is the euro. Kroons are exchanged into euros in all bank offices that offer cash services at the central
exchange and without a commission fee until the end of June 2011. Thereafter, a limited
number of bank offices will continue to provide this service for an entire year. Eesti Pank will exchange kroons into
euros at the central rate and without a commission fee for an unspecified term.
The Police and Border Guard Board advises to be careful when exchanging money and handling large sums of cash.
