Croatian kuna

The Croatian kuna (HRK) is the official currency of Croatia. Its name refers to ancient times when marten pelts (marten is "kuna" in Croatian) were the unit of account in Croatia. In addition to the international symbol, the Croatian kuna is also written with the abbreviation "kn".

The Croatian kuna - where is it used?

HRK is the official monetary unit of Croatia. While visiting this country, for example, on vacation, it is worth checking the HRK exchange rate, by entering the phrase Croatian kuna exchange rate in the browser. This currency is not valid in any other country. Due to the widely developed tourism, the euro is accepted in many places in Croatia. Despite this, a good solution is to take the kuna with you - because the exchange rate on the spot may be less attractive. Buying Croatian kuna should not be a big problem. During the holiday season, it is a popular currency. You can also buy or sell Croatian kuna all year round at attractive rates on our portal.

The history of the Croatian kuna

During the reign of the Roman Empire, taxes in modern Croatia were collected in marten skin. It was because they had a high value. That custom persisted into the Middle Ages. The marten skin was the unit of account in several Slavic countries, including Kievan Rus, until the early 15th century. The exchange rate of a marten, or more specifically a single skin, was initially converted to 1/25 and later 1/50 of a hryvnia of silver. During the Middle Ages, a variety of coins were used in the Croatian territories, including silver denarius. The idea of returning to kune (plural of kuna), but this time in the form of money, appeared in 1939 in the territory of Banovina of Croatia, an autonomy within Yugoslavia. The kuna was finally introduced as a currency unit in 1941, in the puppet state created by the Germans - the Independent State of Croatia, but it was replaced by the Yugoslavian dinar in 1945. The modern Croatian kuna appeared in 1994, replacing the Croatian dinar. From the very beginning, the kuna exchange rate was closely pegged to the German mark. Due to the withdrawal of this currency, the kuna is now pegged to the euro.

The Croatian kuna (HRK) is divided into 100 lipa. In circulation are coins with denominations of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 lipa, as well as 1, 2 and 5 kune. Due to their low value, the first two are used relatively rarely and have not been produced since 2009. However, the Croatian National Bank has no plans to withdraw them from circulation. The coins mainly feature flora and fauna characteristic for the Croatian lands. These include corn, grapes, oak trees, tobacco, olives, tuna or brown bear. The banknotes come in denominations of 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 500, and 1000 kune. The obverse features images of prominent Croatian personalities. The reverses depict architectural landmarks of the country.
