Croatian Kuna (HRK)

The Croatian Kuna is no longer an active currency.

It has now been formally replaced by the Euro.

The Croatian Kuna was the official currency of Croatia until 2023. It was subdivided into 100 lipa. 

The Kuna was introduced in 1994, replacing the previous Croatian Dinar at a rate of 1 Kuna = 1000 Dinara. 

The word “kuna” means “marten” in Croatian and refers to a unit of measure used in medieval times. 

The Kuna was currently pegged to the Euro, with a rate of 1 Euro = 7.4 Kunas. Coins in circulation included 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 lipa coins, as well as 1, 2 and 5 Kuna coins. Banknotes in circulation included the 5, 10, 20, 50 and 100 Kuna notes.

The Croatian National Bank is responsible for issuing the currency. 

Croatia is a member of the European Union and will be replacing the HRK with the Euro in January 2023.
