Currency in Poland
Despite being a member of the EU Poland, like some of the other countries in East Europe (and of course Britain) still uses it’s own currency, called the Zloty. Each Zloty is 100 Groszy, but don’t worry, you won’t see many of them! Luckily the exchange rate is easy to remember. £1 is 5 Zloty and you won’t be spending much more than that for a glass of local beer or wine. Wonderful!
Don’t bother getting Zloty at home, instead come with Pounds or Euros and you’ll find loads of places to exchange them for a good rate. Or better yet just bring your debit card with you. All cash machines will accept it and the rate is just as good as exchanging cash. And of course, like back home, most bars here accept credit and debit card for payment as well.
What you should watch out for however is the pushy money changers that will pester you at tourist spots or in train stations. They are out to rip you off and should be well avoided.
