Macedonia - Money & Costs
Money & Costs in MacedoniaCurrency: Macedonian Denar
Macedonia's hotels are very expensive and will take up most of your budget. If you're able to find a private room rather than a hotel, you'll be better off financially and able to get by on about US$20-40 a day. If not, count on spending at least US$50 a day for a roof over your head and some food in your belly. More palatable versions of each will require closer to US$100 a day.
The denar is now a stable currency, but outside Macedonia it's worthless. Travellers' cheques can be changed at most banks with no commission deducted. Small private exchange offices can be found throughout central Skopje and Ohrid, and the rate they offer is generally good.
