In much poorer Slovakia we even had 5000 sk (166€), I guess it was a great help for mafia when they were counting money back in 90s.

Was Czechoslovakia poorer than Yugoslavia?

Slovenia has always been the most developed part of Yugoslavia, while Slovakia was always lagging behind the Czech part, so it wouldn't surprise me.

I will have a trip to Denmark (I don't know the exact destination right now) in May 12/13. I checked several travelling methods, but I think for 4 people everything is much more expensive than a car journey.

For four people almost any destination in the continent is cheaper by car than by any other means.

Slovenia was surely richer than Czech republic or Slovakia also before 1989, I guess that also Croatia was richer as they could run small private bussineses there.

Well afterall Czech Republic and Slovenia were much more developed back in monarchy times (thanks to nobles in Hungarian part we were lagging behind, just Budapest was developed). After 1918 Czech Republic was the the wealthiest country of ex Austrian empire but it had to support poor Slovakia. I guess if there wasn't communism, Böhmen would be one of the richest countries in Europe, until 1950 it was still richer than Austria and until 70s richer than Spain, Portugal, Greece etc.

Serbian smallest coin is 1 dinar (0.009 EUR), smallest banknote is 10 dinars (0.09 EUR), there's also a 10 dinars coin in circulation. Biggest banknote is 5000 dinars (44.72 EUR).

For this reason we talk about phasing out 500€ notes, in fact they are used mostly by criminals and evasors. In Italy most of them are withdrawn from banks near Swiss and Sammarinese borders. I saw them in real life not more than 3 times in 10 years. In the USA, one of the richest countries in the world, the biggest note worths only 76€.

In Trieste they tried giving me 1 Serbian dinar instead of 10 eurocents. they look almost the same.

you guys are confusing something. Slovenia had a 'tolar' from 1991-2007, not when in Yugoslavia (-1990).

@italystf lire-tolar was very practical 10:1. now is even more, 1:1

Off course, you had dinar before, but it doesn't seem that someone made confusion.

Oh, yes, because diameter of 1 dinar coin is 20 mm and 10 eurocents is 19.75 mm! 10 Croatian lipa coin is also 20 mm in diameter and also yellow!

Yes, at the end. But at my first visit to Italy (1990) it was rather 1:700.
