"The abundance of visitors, interest in the euro exceeded expectations. In terms of the number of visitors we have outperformed a great many of the other countries in which this exhibition had been staged. This was due to the willingness of the population to know the future money, the multifaceted programme of events, the courteous team of guides, the particularly convenient and attractive venue for visitors," Giedrius Simonavičius, director of the Communications Department at the Bank of Lithuania, said.

Guided tours with cash experts and Euro Exhibition guides were arranged more than 300 times.

With the purpose of reporting Lithuania's preparations for the adoption of the euro, representatives of the BBC, France24, NHK (National Broadcaster of Japan), The New York Times (USA), Croatian, Swiss, Belarus, Polish and many other foreign media attended the Exhibition.
