Although Romania is in the EU it doesn’t use the Euro. It uses the Romania New Leu (pronounced ‘lew’ singular and ‘lei’ plural) also known as the RON. 100 bani = one Leu. When we visited five lei were worth around £1 so we doubled the price then divided by ten to get a rough comparison when shopping.
