The Croatian currency is the Kuna (local abbreviation- kn, international abbreviation-HRK), which is divided into 100 lipas (lp). When visiting Croatia, you can exchange most currencies and most credit cards are accepted. Notes consist of 500, 200, 100, 50, 20,10 and 5 kuna. Each bears a likeness to a Croatian hero.
Each kuna is divided into 100 lipa. There are silver coloured 50 and 20 lipa coins and bronze 10 lipa coins. The value of the kuna is tied to the value of the euro. It is quite common for accommodation to be priced in euros however you will mostly pay in kuna.
Regarding its water resources, Croatia has a leading position in Europe.
Concerning water quality, Croatian water is greatly appreciated all over the world.
Due to a lack of established industries there have also been no major incidents of water pollution.
Most of the people are using the tapwater for cooking and drinking. Our tapwater is safe in most regions but we suggest you buy the bottled one just in case.
Our paddling adventures are mainly in the salt water environment and some of the delicate electronics can be damaged.
Don't forget to take the extra memory storage and batteries for a digital camera, as there is not much opportunity to access electricity.
