The local currency in Poland is the Polish Zloty (PLN). This can come as a surprise to unprepared travellers who, logically, think that since Poland is in the EU they use the Euro.
Worry not, though. You’ll soon learn to love the Polish Zloty because it offers great value to tourists! Compared to prices in the UK, US and Western Europe, Poland is incredibly cheap to travel to.
The sign for Polish zloty is zł, so all over Poland you’ll see the prices listed as, for example, 22 zł, which means 22 zloty.
A single zloty isn’t the smallest denomination of Polish currency, though. 1 zł is divided up into 100 groszy, just like there are 100 cents in 1 euro.
