The official currency is Zloty (PLN), divided into 100 groszy. Poland is essentially a cash country, and it is sometimes difficult to use credit cards in the cities, and almost impossible in rural areas. Credit cards are, however, accepted in places frequented by tourists. ATMs are available in major towns and cities. Money (preferably US Dollars or Euros) can be exchanged in the cities and larger towns at banks, hotels or bureaux called 'kantors', which offer the best rates. Banks are open Monday to Friday from 9am to 3pm and some are open on Saturday till 1pm.
