Poland Currency

Money

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. American Express, Diners Club, Visa and MasterCard are, however, accepted in places frequented by tourists. ATMs are available in towns and cities, where the sign 'Bankomat' indicates them. Money (preferably US$ 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 5pm and some are open on Saturday till 1pm.
