Polish currency system

Poland is a member state of the European Union but it has its own currency, zloty (zł, PLN), which is the nation’s legal tender.
One zloty is divided into one hundred smaller units called grosz (abbreviation gr). The Polish money is available in the following denominations: one-grosz, two-grosz, five-grosz, ten-grosz, twenty-grosz, and fifty-grosz coins; one-zloty, two-zloty, and five-zloty coins and ten-zloty, twenty-zloty, fifty-zloty, 100-zloty, and 200-zloty bank notes. 
Cash dispensers (ATMs) are situated in a majority of bank establishments and in all shopping centres. Many restaurants and some shops, especially in the centre of Wroclaw, accept payments in Euro.


In 2016 Wroclaw, alongside the Spanish city of Donostia-SanSebastian, will boast the honour of becoming European Capital of Culture – the most recognizable cultural initiative of the European Union. The city will also host the World Games in 2017: an international sport competition held under aegis of the International Olympic Committee a year after the main event.
