A packet of cigarettes in Croatia will cost you two Kunas more for one packet from today. The Regulation on excise duties on tobacco and tobacco products comes into force. "According to our calculations, this raise should not result in a price increase of more than two Kuna," Finance Minister Zdravko Maric commented.
This move has been due to alignment with the EU regulation. It is also expected that the price rise will encourage more smokers to quit.
