What currency is used in Croatia?While Croatia is a member state of the European Union, it does not use the Euro (EUR). Croatia's currency is the Kuna (officially HRK or KN as it's usually labelled in shops and markets).The currency took its name from a cute-looking but fierce animal, a local representative of the weasel family called Kuna. In medieval times, the fur of these animals was traded for food and lodging, so they became a quasi-currency.Unlike some places in Bosnia and Herzegovina, we didn't see Euros being accepted anywhere in Croatia. So, make sure you have HRK when you visit the country.How much should I budget for a trip to Croatia?Below are our travel costs when we visited Croatia in June 2019. We spent a total of 25 nights in the country: 7 nights in Zagreb, 3 nights at Plitvice Lakes National Park, 5 nights in Zadar, 3 nights in Skradin/Krka National Park, 5 nights in Šibenik and 2 nights in Dubrovnik.Our daily travel expenses in Croatia were USD54.59 / EUR48.26 per person per day, slightly above our general budget of USD50.AssumptionsOur travel costs are based upon the following: Couple travelling together Not travelling as part of an organised tour group, but as independent travelersOur travel style wherever we go is reasonable consistent, which is great when you want to compare travel costs: Accommodation: We usually stay in self-catered accommodation, in our own room and with (preferably) our own bathroom. The kitchen may be shared. Dining and Groceries: We have at least two meals a day at home. We like to eat out at cafes or restaurants every few days. Transportation: Wherever possible, we travel by public transport. Activities: We pay for some tourist attractions or activities, but are selective as our funds are limited (just like everyone else's).Not included are the entry and exit transport into/out of the country.
