Abstract: In this paper examine the impact of the current financial crisis on the performance of banks across 19 countries from Central and Eastern European for the period 2004 – 2010. The period chosen is relevant in the context of the entrance of new ten EU members at the beginning of the year 2004 and the beginning signs of the subprime crisis in the Central and Eastern Europe in 2008. Also, we highlight the differences between different groups of countries: member of European Union or non-member of Euro Union.The results show large differences between pre-crisis period and crisis period and among the banking systems in terms of performance indicators. In average, banks from countries that are not members of European Union recorded an ample decrease of profitability and stability during current financial crisis. We observe that the best-performing banks during current financial crisis had significantly more core equity capital and are more focus on traditional banking activities
