Must-sees in Croatia

  • Dubrovnik
  • The historic city of Dubrovnik is Europe’s new favourite destination, with 8th century walls that feature in Game of Thrones! Take in the views on the nearby islands of Lokrum and Mljet.
  • Split
  • There’s nearly 2,000 years of history here, with Diocletian’s Palace being the best place to start your journey through time. For a natural wonder, try the Krka National Park.

The kuna’s coming of age

The kuna as we know it was introduced in Croatia in 1994, but variations of it have been around since Roman times. The current kuna replaced the dinar, but speculation is rife that, within a few years, Croatia will move over to the euro.

There are 100 lipa to a kuna, and you can usually find coins to the value of 10, 20 and 50 lipa. There are coins for under 10 lipa, but these are rarely used since they equate to very little. Many retailers in the bigger cities also accept payment in euros.

Tipping is not expected in Croatian restaurants – it is more a bonus than an unspoken obligation. If you feel your service has been exceptional, and you really want to leave a gesture of thanks, 10% of your bill will do fine.

Frequently used banknotes

The banknotes used in Croatia are for the value of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1,000 HRK. Because of the small value of lipa, it is worth having plenty of 5 and 10 kuna notes to hand so you can settle small bills easily. All of them, except for the 5 kuna note, are intaglio printed for use by the visually-impaired.
