Favorite thing: The currency of the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia is the Macedonian Denar (plural: Denari).

At the time of our visit in March 2012 the interbank exchange rate was 73.5 Denari to the British Pound. When we exchanged our British Pounds at an exchange bureau in Skopje's long distance bus station, we got 71 Denari to the Pound. That seemed like a pretty competitive rate to us. We had been unable to obtain any Denari in the UK prior to our trip.

There are plenty of banks and ATMs in the centre of Skopje. I used ATMs to get my currency, but Emma doesn't like using her bank card overseas so was reliant on the banks. We found that the banks were closed on Sundays, but the exchange bureau at the bus station was open.

The Macedonian Denar (MKD) comes in the following denominations:

Coins: 50 deni, 1, 2, 5, 10 and 50 denari.

Notes: 10, 50, 100, 500, 1000 and 5000 denari.
