For the first time since the euro was introduced, the crown strengthened to drop below Sk41 to the benchmark currency. By lunchtime yesterday it reached Sk40.92 per euro, before weakening slightly to finish the day at Sk40.99.
The governor of the National Bank of Slovakia Marián Julius said at a recent conference in Prague that he saw a place for a stronger crown.
