Just got back from a cruise around the Med and first stop was Dubrovnik and quite a few of the shops we went into only took the Kuna and although the coffee shop we went to took euros change was given in Kuna.
Euros are widely accepted, but have some small denomination notes/coins with you. Dubrovnik is a fairly compact walled medieval city that was restored around 10 years ago after the bombing. A walk around the city and the walls is quite interesting.
For Dubrovnik infom suggest you check out the info in the PORTS section of the website alluded to.
I visited Dubrovnik last week on Fred Olsen Braemar and I agree that the Euro is widely accepted in the town centre. However, the bars in the port area would only accept the Kuna. The traffic was horrendous, the round trip on the shuttle bus from the port to the city centre took 1 hour 30 minutes. An interesting city, just make sure you give yourself plenty of time to enjoy it. Happy cruising, Jan .
You must have been unlucky with the traffic as we revisited the old walled city twice in the last 2 years & don't recall the journey taking more than 15 or 20 minutes by cab (& cheaper for 4 people) & I have to admit I didn't know they had their own currency as we used the Euro on both occasions freely without ever being questioned. We live & learn. Regards.
Thankyou for the reply,will allow plenty of time don't want to get left behind.
Euro is accepted everywhere. you should visit the old town - it is amazing - we went there twice on cruises and have spent many weekends there since because it is so fabukous - you will probably be tendered into the old town - take the boat from the harbour to Kavtak - we loved it.
Thankyou to everyone who took the time to reply, am really looking forward to going will try and fit everything in can't wait.
