What can you buy for 2zl (40p) in Poland?

Polish currency is the Zloty (literally meaning ‘gold’). Look out for a 5 to 1 exchange rate at the moment so it’s a good time to travel to Poland and make the most it!

The 2 zloty coin looks deceptively like a 1 Euro coin but is worth a whole 40p…. but you can buy a whole lot for it!

So, this is what you can buy for 2 zl: (one of the below… not all 😉 )
– 1 donut (or 2 in a shop/supermarket!)
– 1 bus ticket (in private buses in Lublin – watch out as some are part of the city bus network and they take tickets, but the private ones will say ‘komunikacja prywatna’ and will take cash only)
– 1 wooden spoon/spatula at the market (at Kazimierz Dolny street market or Zakopane)
– 2 small bottles of water (try ‘naleczowianka’ – lovely local mineral water)
– 1 newspaper
– 1 carnation at the flower market (yep, for £5 you can buy a gorgeous buquet of flowers in Poland!)
– 1 scoop of ice cream at the beach
– 1 packet of pretzel fingers (‘paluszki’)
