What is the Currency of Croatia? Croatian currency is the Croatian kuna.
Croatian kuna has been in use since 1994. Its mark is kn and International code HRK. 1 Croatian kuna divided into 100 lipas. Lipa’s symbol is LP.
The word “kuna” means “marten” in Croatian because it is based on the use of marten hides as a value in medieval trade. The word Lipa means “linden tree”, a species traditionally planted in Croatia and other parts of the Austro-Hungarian Empire in the early modern period.
The modern kuna was introduced on 30 May 1994 and started a transitional period of the Croatian dynasty, which ended on 31 December 1994. The exchange rate between dinar and kuna was 1 kuna = 1000 dinar. Since then, Croatia has entered into an actual currency system with a fixed exchange rate. Kuna has been fixed to the German mark. By replacing the mark with the euro, the fixation of the kuna has become euro.
