Which European countries don’t take the Euro?
Question

I’m planning a multi-country trip around Europe – which countries still have their own currency and how easy is it to access cash when I’m out there?

Currently, 19 countries have the Euro as their national currency, making it really easy to travel around Europe without constantly exchanging money. 

Of the EU Member States, Denmark is unique in its position to opt-out of the Euro and continues to use the Danish Krone (not to be confused with the Norwegian Krone, Icelandic Króna, or Swedish Krona). If you’re planning a Scandinavian trip, be prepared for lots of different currencies.

Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary, Poland, Romania, and Sweden are the only other EU countries not to currently adopt the Euro – though all have plans to shift across to the single European currency at some point in the future.

Outside of the European Union, but still, in Europe, the three notable countries that have independent currencies are Switzerland (Swiss Franc), Russia (Russian Ruble), and the UK (Pound Sterling).

Here’s a list of the different independent currencies of Europe – all other European countries use the Euro:

Albania: Albanian Lek

Armenia: Armenian Dram

Azerbaijan: Azerbaijani Manat

Belarus: Belarusian Ruble

Bosnia and Herzegovina: Bosnia and Herzegovina Convertible Mark

Bulgaria: Bulgarian Lev

Croatia: Croatian Kuna

Czech Republic: Czech Koruna

Denmark: Danish Krone

Georgia: Georgian Iari

Hungary: Hungarian Forint

Iceland: Icelandic Króna

Moldova: Moldavian Leu 

Liechtenstein: Swiss Franc

North Macedonia: Second Macedonian Denar

Norway: Norwegian Krone

Poland: Polish Złoty

Romania: Romanian Leu

Russia: Russian Ruble

Serbia: Serbian Dinar

Sweden: Swedish Krona

Switzerland: Swiss Franc

Turkey: Turkish Lira

Ukraine: Ukrainian Hryvnia

United Kingdom: British Sterling
