A couple of Croatian kunas and you’re on your way to visiting one of the most interesting and engaging nations on Earth. Pack your bags, exchange your NZD to HRK, and get ready for an unforgettable getaway.

The seafood and scenery alone would be enough reason to travel to Croatia. Or the island hopping and night-time shopping. Or the Dubrovnik fun and the summertime sun. The list is endless.

But none of it is possible if you don’t bring any Croatian kunas with you (except the sunshine… that’ll still be there). To make it simple, the HRK is tied to the value of the euro, so you may find some businesses are happy to accept euros as payment. But this isn’t a law or even a norm, so it’s best to kuna up!

If you’re arriving from (or about to head to) another European nation, there are no cash restrictions whatsoever – you can carry countless kuna. But from anywhere else in the world, anything over EUR 10,000 (or any equivalent) in cash must be declared on arrival or departure of Croatia.

Coins and notes

Just in case ‘kuna’ wasn’t cool enough of a currency name, their smaller division is even better.

Coins range across both kunas and lipas, starting through 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 lipas and continuing through 1, 2, 5 and 25 kunas.

Notes come in 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 kuna variations, so there’s a kuna or lipa to suit anything.

Facts about the currency

  • The word ‘kuna’ stems back to ‘marten’, from the days when marten pelts were used as currency during medieval trading.
  • Kunas and lipas work just like dollars and cents – there are 100 lipas in a kuna.
  • Production has stopped on the 5 kuna note, but it’s still legal tender – so if you find one, think twice about spending it.
  • A local currency has been used in Croatia since 1018.
