I think you should use Kuna since its the official currency. Some will accept Euro but ALL will accept Kuna.

Croatian Kuna will continue to be the legal currency of Croatia for several more years. Only 17 of the 28 EU nations have changed over to the Euro. It also does take some time to change an entire nations legal currency.

In my view it would be economically disastrous to switch to the Euro as many other Mediterranean countries have done, to their grievous detriment. IMO the kuna is about 30% overvalued and needs to be devalued. Croatia doesn't produce anything in particular that several other EU countries don't already produce. Much in Croatia is expensive for visitors which this country seriously depends on.

I've heard it will be 4 years minimum until Croatia can switch to the Euro.

I don't expect Euro to last so long.
