Should I Buy Croatian Kuna Before I Leave?

It's a good idea to arrive in Croatia with your holiday cash already sorted. This way, you'll avoid ATM transaction fees and costly international exchange rates at the airport.

Most Croatian ATMs charge a flat fee of around 20 kuna for card users who aren’t customers of the bank that owns the machine.

Note that on top of foreign transaction fees, your home bank may also charge a fee or percentage of the transaction. These fees vary depending on your bank, so contact them before your trip to avoid any unexpected charges.

The maximum withdrawal amount at ATMs varies from bank to bank. Typically, you can expect to get up to 2000 kuna at a time from most machines.

 

Is Croatia Expensive?

Despite being more expensive than its neighbouring countries, Croatia is extremely good value for what you get.

  1. Can I use Euros in Croatia?

    Not with locals, but with certain hotels, train stations and restaurants

    Despite joining the EU in 2013, Kuna is still Croatia’s main currency and there are no confirmed plans to adopt the Euro any time soon.

Croatian Coins & Banknotes

 

It’s a good idea to have a basic understanding of the local currency before you go to Croatia. Here’s what you need to know:

 

Croatian Coins

The Kuna is divided into 100 lipa. Croatian coins come in denominations of 1, 2, 5,10, 20, 50 lipa, and 1, 2 and 5 kuna.

Croatian coins are notoriously difficult to identify because apart from the bronze 5 and 10 lipas, they’re all silver.

 

Banknotes in Croatia

Croatian banknotes come in denominations of 1000, 500, 200, 100, 50, 20, 10 and 5. They’re hard to miss with their brightly coloured designs and detailed drawings of Croatia’s famous landmarks.

The 1000 kuna notes are extremely rare and you should avoid the 500 kuna notes as they’re hard to change at most shops and restaurants.
