Croatia adopts the euro as its official currency. The Balkan country said goodbye to its Kuna currency.
While some economic experts believe this move will help the country due to ongoing inflation worldwide, a lot of Croatians reacted differently.
Some Croatians are worried about currency adoption because they believe it only benefits large countries like France and Germany.
A 63-year-old Croatian, Drazen Golemac, who is a pensioner, reacted to the move with the following statement: “We will cry for our Kuna, prices will soar.”
A lot of Croatians believe the adoption of the euro may lead to a hike in prices.
The use of the euro is now widespread among elite Croatians, as a lot of them now value their assets in euros.
Croatia, a former Yugoslav republic with a population of 3.9 million residents, became part of the European Union in 2013.
