Currency in Croatia is Kuna. It has been since 1994. The word “kuna” means “marten” in Croatian since it is based on the use of marten pelts as units of value in medieval trading. The word lipa means “linden (lime) tree”.
The Kuna comes in dominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 as notes and 1, 2, 5 and 25 (25 Kn being largely commemorative) as coins. The Lipa comes in coins of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50.


You will find that you can pay for some items – private accommodation, taxis, some small restaurants – in Euros. Do note that this is entirely on an unofficial basis; the Euro is NOT an official currency and NO business/individual is required to accept them as payment.

So, be sure to change your money as soon as you arrive cause not many stores receive euros or dollars. You can do that in banks in Žminj.
