    As you know, the Kuna is the Croatian currency and 1 Croatian Kuna equals barely 20 US cents. Places to exchange your dollars into kunas include currency exchange offices and banks, which use the daily bank rate set by the government and do not charge "commission". Do check with your local bank home, if they will charge you a fee for withdrawing money from the ATMs in Croatia.

    The official currency of Croatia was the Kuna, but as the joined the EU in July 2013 it is the euro. I haven't been there since 2012 so i do not whether you can still use Kunas. I bet Croatia will be even more expensive now they've joined the euros...what a pity:(

    You will pay a commission of about 3% in most instances plus the exchange rate fee at most exchange offices. I would only suggest exchanging money at a hotel in case of emergency because the exchange rate is terrible.
