Polish zloty (PLN), which literally means 'golden', is the currency of Poland. The modern zloty is subdivided into 100 'groszy' (Polish equivalent of cents). The place to exchange currency in Poland is called 'kantor'.
Be careful with changing your money at the airports! Usually, it's much more expensive and you can lose a lot of money. It is better to google ‘kantor’ and change the money after your arrival in Lodz. There are some currency exchange offices located in the center (Piotrkowska street):
- Piotrkowska 209
- Halls in front of Auchan
- “Czarny Koń” Kantor, Więckowskiego 3
- Kantor Exchange Group - on the ground-floor of Manufaktura (on the right from the entrance)
You can withdraw the money in all the ATMs around the city, but the most common one is Euronet.
