Travel, Currency and Money saving tips for Croatia

Fans of Game of Thrones have likely already made their pilgrimage here, with Dubrovnik and Split both being key locations for the fantasy series. its not difficult to see why Croatia was chosen. Croatia stretches down the north-eastern side of the glittering, sapphire, Adriatic sea. The clarity of the water is striking (but be sure to bring water shoes as sea urchins are numerous, which is testament to the clean water). Context that with ancient walled towns, a sprinkling of sophisticated islands, picturesque lakes and waterfalls, and there you have the rich foundations for many a fantasy location, but more importantly for the traveller, the opportunity for a wealth of varied and wonderful experiences to be had.

Croatia has come far since the 1990s when the country was at the brink of defeating communism and fighting for its independence. By 1995, Croatia had fought a war and declared its independence. In 2013 Croatia became part of the EU but kept its currency, the croatian Kuna. Some places will accept Euros but don't rely on it as this is always on an unofficial basis. its also very unlikely that you will get a competitive exchange rate for your Euro.

Currency exchange can generally be made at all banks for major currencies or Exchange bureaus which are open for longer hours. Larger post offices and hotels also offer exchange services.

Credit cards are widely accepted but if you're eating out at a small, family run restaurant, its always wise to carry some cash.
