Lithuania joined the European Union (EU) on the 1st of May 2004 and on the 1st of January 2015 Lithuania even became a member of the Eurozone. This means that nowadays the Euro is the official currency in the country.

When I visited Klaipeda in 2006, Lithuania still had the Litas as official currency. The Litas was subdivided into 100 Centai.

The former 10 Litas note showed the two pilots Steponas Darius and Stasys Girenas and their airplane "Lithuanica" whose wreckage can be seen in the War Museum (Vytauto Didziojo Muziejus). For the full story, please see separate tips under "Things to do" and "Off the beaten path".

You can get your local money with a credit or debit card from cash points or just by exchanging your local money at one of the many exchange offices.
