Be very careful when exchanging currency. Exchange offices frequently offer awesome rates and low commission, around 1% of the sum. An inscription on the exchange office will proudly announce about it. But in fact, there is very often another small inscription typed in tiny and less readable letters. And it says that such rate and commission are valid only for specific amounts, usually very high ones. For small amounts another rate and commission of 15%, and sometimes 20%, are applied. Try to find an exchange office with “no commission” inscription. But even in this case, it’s worth enquiring about a sum which is exchanged without commission.
