Croatia has a reputation as cheap even though prices have been rising the last few years, especially in southern Dalmatia between Split and Dubrovnik. Naturally the coast and islands are more expensive than inland destinations (except Zagreb) and July and August are vastly more expensive than the rest of the year. See more on when to go to Croatia.

Croatia is not part of the eurozone although it became part of the EU in 2013. If and when it becomes part of the eurozone, it will replace the kuna and adopt the euro as its currency. As of now, Croatia is cheaper than many other Mediterranean destinations and offers excellent value for money. In the following pages, you'll read all about managing your money on your Croatian holiday.
