Croatia Introduces the Euro on January 1, 2023.

Notice regarding the introduction of the euro

The introduction of the euro is an important matter and we want you to know the news in time. In our notifications (by e-mail or post), you will receive all important information about the process of introducing the euro.

In accordance with the positive assessment of the European Commission, the Council of the European Union adopted the Decision on the adoption of the Euro in Croatia from January 1, 2023 and the regulation according to which the fixed conversion rate of Kuna to Euro is established at 1.00 EUR = 7.53450 HRK.

Calculation Rules

On the day of the Euro adoption, all Kuna amounts in your deposit, savings and transaction accounts, loans and other financial statements will be automatically converted into Euro using the fixed conversion rate.

No fee is charged for recalculation and the unique account number is not changed.

Also, the adoption of the Euro as the official currency does not affect the validity of existing contracts and legal instruments in which Kuna is specified as currency.

The calculated amounts will be rounded to two decimal places, in accordance with the mathematical rules of rounding:

  • if the third decimal place is less than five, the second decimal place remains unchanged (for example, HRK 100 = EUR 13.27228, rounded to EUR 13.27) and
  • if the third decimal is equal to or greater than five, the second decimal is increased by one (for example, HRK 50 = EUR 6.63614, rounded to EUR 6.64).
