Hi. I'm confused. I'm off to Bansko this week. Most of the websites I go to seem to quote prices in Euros but the currency is Lev. What currency should I take?
leva is used in the resort, and throughout Bulgaria, take Leva.....many visitors come from countries where the Euro is used so businesses often advertise in Euro as its more familiar for tourists and they can work out costs easily in a currency they are familiar with....the Leva rate is pegged to the Euro so its easy for businesses to list prices in Euros
If you’re looking at excursions, most companies are happy to accept Euros. However, as explained, the official currency in the shops, bars and restaurants is lev
Many thanks for this reply - very helpful :-)
