Kuna or Euro?

I read somewhere that the Euro has pretty much replaced the official currency for everyday cash transactions. Is that true? Can I happily get Kuna out of an ATM and spend them on campsite fees etc, or should I stock up on Euros?

When we went to Croatia last year I inadvertently offered Euro and under no circumstances did they have any interest in them and demanded Kuna, I admit we were in the sticks and they probably thought it was English money.


I am here for a Good Time..........But not for a Long Time.

We found that Kuna was the prefered currency but some sites would accept Euro.
We tended to pay in Kuna as the exchange rate was better.
Croatia is fab....Enjoy!

Supermarket shopping and fuel seemed much the same price as in western and southern europe. I stayed on a few campsites but it was low season so pretty cheap.
I was completely wrong in my first post about the euro being preferred to kuna - it's most definitely the reverse.

Croatia costs

e were ther earlier this year and the Kuna is more the preferred currency. Using the ACSI book we found that the majority of campsites were costing 15E/n with only a few, mostly inferior, still on 11E but thses were few and far between.

The UK style supermarkets were expensive, village shops surprisingly good for bits and peices but we were delighted to find the usual Lidl and Aldi (Hofer i think)
Along the caost was dearer than inland, dont miss the National Parks esp. Plitvisci with the lakes and waterfalls. Dont argue about the cost of motorhome parking for the visit being the same as a coach! or the entry cost,,, it is simply stunning but wear stout shoes and take your stongest legs!

Deisel about the same as most of europe at Ģ1 per ltr ie 1.1E

Hope this helps, have a good trip

Kuna

It will probably take you a good few days to get down to Croatia, so you will have euro's on board.

In any case the ATMs pay out in local currency, just make sure that you spend it all 'cos no one else will want it!

Have a good trip
