Where to change 200 Croatian HRK

Hi

I have 200,xy Croatian HRK left from holidays and would like to exchange / deposit / sell them before they lose legal tender. I have a Postfinance account but I can't find HRK among the currencies they handle.

Assuming I won't be able to visit Croatia soon, where can I put this sum to good use? (It's around 25 CHF).
I searched into SBB but apparently you can book foreign currency before you travel, they don't mention converting it back to CHF.

I'm also ok giving it to someone for a discount, I just hate the idea to have some value sitting on a shelf and being destroyed (just like food waste).

If I were you, I would try to exchange it at SBB when you're there next.
Otherwise, you'll be able to exchange kuna for euros within Croatia until Jan 1, 2024, so maybe you can offer these to acquaintances who book Croatia trips in the spring or summer?
Good luck!

Where do you live? We are going to Croatia soon and some small cash would be helpful.
