The Croatian Kuna is a relatively new and a possibly short lived currency as it was only introduced in 1994. Croatia joined the European Union in June 2013 and is on the path to ascension to the Eurozone. This will mean adoption of the Euro.
There will be a period of transition where both the Euro and the Kuna will be accepted, but on your return from Croatia it is recommended that you do not keep large amounts of Kuna unless you intend to return in the immediate future. Check out our currency buyback section to find a buyer for your left-over Kuna on your return.
The Kuna is one of the more popular currencies that we compare, with the average traveller taking £860 (Kn7,061.46, as of Sunday 23rd of October 2016) based upon data from 1st of July to 30th of September 2016, worth of Croatian Kuna with them when visting Croatia. This is up by £200 compared to 2013. The Croatian government is trying to maintain the Kuna's value at a level stable with the Euro to assist with the transition to the single currency if it goes ahead. At present there is no fixed date for ascension.
The Foreign and Commonealth Office (FCO) have reported in the past of an increase in the number of forged Croatian Kuna banknotes, especially 200 and 500 notes. You should only exchange money at reliable places like banks while you in Croatia and be extra vigilant when accepting large notes from unknown places or persons.
Croatia is a member of the European Union so if you're a British passport holder you won't need a visa to visit for up to 90 days in any six-month period. If you want to extend your stay beyond 90 days you should consult the Croatian Embassy or your local Croatian police station.
You must also ensure that you register with the local police station or tourist information centre within 15 days of your arrival in Croatia as failure to do so could result in a fine or your removal from the country. If you are staying in a hotel they will register you automatically as part of the check-in process.
Over the past week the Croatian Kuna has increased by 0.61% from last Monday's rate of 8.1612 to today's rate of 8.2110 which means £750 will buy you kn37.35 more now than it would have a week ago. During this period the best rate we recorded is right now at 8.2110 and the worst rate was 8.1612 on Monday.
The 90 day outlook has seen the Croatian Kuna rate drop by 5.39% from 8.6784 on 26th July 2016 to 8.2110 today. Based on these figures, £750 would have bought you kn350.55 more three months ago that it would have today. We recorded a high rate of 8.728 on 5th September 2016 and a low rate of 8.078 on 10th October 2016.
