HRK – Croatian Kuna

Sign – kn / Code – HRK

Long before our corporate currency exchange brokers were helping our clients with their Croatian Kuna transfers, the Kuna was creating its own rich history.

About the Croatian Kuna

Although it has some origins in the 15th Century, the modern Kuna was introduced in 1994 following the dissolution of Yugoslavia and the Dinar.

An alternative name for the Kuna was the Kruna but this was deemed too similar to the Krone currency of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, their former rulers.

Croatia joined the EU in January 2013 and is expected to adopt the Euro within two or three years.
