The official currency in Croatia is the kuna (1 kuna =100 lipa).
Foreign currencies can be exchanged to kunas in exchange-offices (banks, post offices, hotels, tourist resorts receptions, tourist agencies) according to the valid exchange rate. Credit cards can be used for payments wherever declared.
