The Polish currency is the: zloty (PLN). One zloty is divided into 100 grosz-es. Coins come in denominations of 1 grosz to 5 zloty (in turn: 1 gr, 2 gr, 5 gr, 10 gr, 20 gr, 50 gr, 1 zl, 2 zl, 5 zl). Bank notes go from 10 zloty to 200 zloty-s.
The value of 1 PLN is: 1 EUR = 3.8 - 4.5 PLN (you can check a current rate at Polish National Bank webpage).
Do not exchange currency on the street! Instead, go to any place marked: currency exchange office (kantor). These are the legal exchange agencies. You may also exchange currency in some banks. As in most countries, do not change money at the airports: the rate is terrible there.
