There are still many people in the East who speak Ukrainian/Ruthenian.

9 languages on Austrian krone, 6 from them are Slavic

I'm starting a mega road trip with 3 other companions. In couple hours I'll drive to the Amsterdam area, pick the friends, and then go to La Línea (Spain).

Our outward trip will follow the AMiens/Rouen/Nantes/Bordeaux/Irún/Valladolid/Salamanca/Badajoz route (with 2 overnight stops).

Then, we stay 7 days in La Línea.

After that, we'll be back via Malaga/Loja/Granada/Lorca/Alcoy/Barcelona/Nimes/Lyon/Dijon/Metz/Luxembourg/Maastricht

So I'll be mostly out of SSC for like 12 days :p

Off course, there are border controls and the road crosses the runway of the airport, so closes everytime a plane lands or takes off.

I suggest you to cross the border on foot and visit Gibraltar by cable car, buses (some lines are free of charge, like the one towards Europa Point and back), and of course on foot.

And Gibraltar should be Spanish, as stated in the Utrecht treaty.

Hungarian pengő from 1926 - six languages (Hungarian, German, Slovakian, Serbian, Ukrainian, Romanian):
A note of only ten pengő? That is absolutely nothing (Really NOTHING!) compared with the 1.0E+20 pengő note :

speaking about banknotes - currently i have one 1000 HRK in my wallet (sold some old broken gold on blackmarket, it has really good price ). last time i had it 3 years ago when i won some money on quiz and i took all the money in cash (had a bunch of 1000 HRK's )
it is not that large value anyway, about 133€, but it is not often.




i like the most 200 HRK, and ATM's give them the most often



and this is 0,01 HRK. it is about 0,0013€ very rare and you will get it back in shop once in a year.

@ X-type: was it a quiz on national tv? How much did you win, if is not an impolite question?

When I was in Croatia I never saw the 5kn bill but only 5kn coins. Are they still in circulation?
The lowest coins I got as charge were 5 lipa, but in different places I found on the ground two 2 lipa coins and an 1 lipa coin (probably people get ride of them) and they were accepted as 5 lipa. Are they like 1 and 2 eurocents in Finland and the Netherlands?
Is the 25kn coin really used (I never saw any)?

yep, Affari tuoi. about 3500€.

5 HRK bills are very rare. i haven't seen any in past year. in the 1990es there was inversion - rare 5 kn coins, and often 5 kn bills. but coins have changed them. there was even modernized re-issue of 5 kn bills, but they didn't last long. they will accept it everywhere, but it is very rare.
1 and 2 lp - the same as 0,01€ in NL and FI. accepted everywhere (except gas stations - they hate coins ), but not in the use actually anymore.

25 kn coin is used and accepted eveywhere, but it is numismatic coin. there are 9 types of it, you can see them here. . 6 of them were issued in 300.000 pieces, one in 200.000, two in 30.000 and one last in 20.000.

interesting fact: a person in charge for a transport of Mairie de Paris is a woman. And a socialist.
