Visa Requirements

Canadian passport holders do not need a visa to travel to, and between, the 26 countries within the Schengen Area for visits of up to 90 days within any 180-day period; longer stays will require a visa. You can obtain more information from the European Commission website. European countries, such as the UK, Ireland, Bulgaria, Russia, and Ukraine, that are not party to the Schengen Agreement have their own rules and regulations regarding visas and permitted lengths of stay; check with the relevant embassies or consulates before planning your trip.

Languages and Currency in Europe

Though English is generally widely spoken and understood in major cities across the continent, especially in Western Europe, the farther you head away from the tried-and-trodden track, the more useful you will find translation tools and apps. Major languages include French, German, Italian, and Russian, though you will encounter many more languages in various countries. Do be aware that some European nations, like Russia, Bulgaria, and Montenegro, use the Cyrillic script, whilst Greece has its own script.

Whilst many countries use the euro, do check in advance the currency you will need for your chosen destination. For example, the UK, Denmark, Hungary, Russia, Iceland, Poland, and the Czech Republic are amongst countries that have their own currency.
