Money

What is the local currency?
  • Croatians use the Croatian kuna, which has been in use since 1994. Croatia is a part of the EU, but the Euro isn’t the official currency in Croatia. In particularly touristy areas, you can expect to see prices shown in both kuna and Euro though. Unofficially, the Euro, the US dollar and the Pound Sterling are accepted by some local merchants. However, you shouldn’t rely on the Euro, nor any other foreign currency within Croatian borders. Note also that if your bills are damaged or torn, they may not be accepted by local merchants and bureaus.

Can I pay everything with my debit/credit cards
  • In general you can, but there will be many places which do not take credit cards like smaller stores, taxies, restaurants and bars.
Which ATMs should I use?
  • ATMs, or ‘bankomats’, are readily accessible in most parts of Croatia, especially tourist centres. Most ATMs have the option to transact in English and will accept international cards. For extra safety, bring two functioning cards with you, in case one isn’t accepted. ATMs can be found in supermarkets, airports, posts offices, train stations and banks. Note that you need a four-digit pin to operate an ATM in Croatia. Read more about ATMs
