Croatia will join the EU’s Schengen zone starting January 1st, 2023, pirates. On that date the Mediterranean nation will also give up on the Croatian Kuna and adopt the Euro currency.

The preparations for a transition have already begun. Since September 5th, 2022, prices in shops have been displayed in both Kuna and Euros, a practice that will continue throughout 2023.

For the first few weeks, it will be possible to pay in cash in both currencies, but change must be given back in Euros.

The change is expected to make travel easier. What does it mean for US tourists?

  • Less paperwork if you were planning on flying into a Schengen country with a plan to travel to Croatia afterwards.

  • You can use your old Euro coins from other vacations in Croatia, too!

  • Prices are likely to go up next year.

  • There's been news that over 60% of Croatia's ATMs won't be working in December 2022, something to plan ahead for.
