Money in Croatia

Money in Croatia – The Official Currency

The Croatian currency is the Euro and is no longer the Croatia Kuna. (The word ‘Kuna’ means marten, a weasel-like animal, whose fur Croats used as payment many centuries ago.)

Money in Croatia – ATMs

Alternatively, you may not see the need to purchase Euros before your trip – which is perfectly understandable. In this case, our first piece of advice would be to take a bank card/cash card instead – this avoids the need to travel with large-ish amounts of cash, and ATMs are readily available in all resorts, towns, and cities in Croatia, in banks, supermarkets, airports and elsewhere.

As a foreign card is inserted into the machine, you will most likely be presented with a choice of languages – no need to navigate through Croatian-language menus. The exchange rate you’ll receive will be fairly good, and there may only be a small service charge, which depends on your bank back home – you may want to check before traveling. Local banks may also charge an operating fee on top of this.

Are Euros accepted in Croatia?

YES! As of January 1, 2023, Croatia’s official currency is the Euro.

Currencies to take with you and changing money in Croatia

Taking your ‘home’ currency (U.S. Dollars) to Croatia and changing it there will not result in any problems – it’s very easy to exchange for Euros in the country.

Hotel exchange rates are usually quite poor, so try to avoid changing your money at your hotel. You’ll probably be better off changing your money in a bank or in one of the numerous Bureaux de Change dotted around towns.
