Where to Change Money
If you're travelling with an international currency, and you want zloty, you can change in the airport exchange houses, in the main banks in the city, or in the famous Kantor.
These exchange houses are scattered throughout the city, and have long opening hours, which mean you can change money at almost any time of day. Our recommendation is that you compare the exchange rate which various Kantor offer to choose that which is best for you.
There are also ATMs throughout the centre of Krakow, meaning that taking zloty out directly in the city is a recommendable option.
