Well, recent events in Ukraine have made eurozone membership a more enticing prospect for some. I think Romania and Bulgaria (depending on who wins early elections there) could join within the next 5 years. Of course numerous other countries in the east have put off joining the eurozone indefinitely but they may decide to take the plunge simply because they don't want to be completely left behind as (or if) the eurozone integrates even further.
