How much is a kuna really worth?

We have never really had trouble with converting foreign currency before but this kuna seems to be confusing us. After a day, we think we have finally figured it out. We knew that $10 was about 55 kuna and we could figure out the smaller purchases easily enough. Our first miscalculation came when I bought this white linen dress for 350 Kuna thinking that I was paying $35. Nope, but the dress is so cute even for $70 that it doesn't matter. Even without Matt's accounting skills we have solved our mathematical weakness simply by dividing by five. We were smart enough not to buy the melon from the market for 37 kuna. We are learning.
This is a what kuna or two will get you in Rovinj-
7 Kunas will buy you a gelato or a yummy croissant for your breakfast every morning.
0 Kunas to stroll down the cobblestone streets and discover doorways to the sea and cute shops to tempt you.
250 Kunas will buy you a fish platter freshly caught in the Adriatic that morning.
75 Kuna will let you experience a sun set cruise with a warm breeze and beautiful pink and blue waves. To make this moment extra special, dolphins will jump out of the water to the delight of everyone on board.
40 Kunas will rent you a bike for 4 hours and 35 Kunas will buy you a cold drink from the beach front kiosk after you drank all the water you brought along.
0 Kuna will surround me in an emerald paradise, feeling alive and refreshed after our bike ride. I tread water surrounded by the dark, rich and crystal clear water of the Adriatic, stretching as far as the eye can see to one side and lapping gently into centuries-old rocks on the other.
There is no photo of me swimming because the other Beach on the beach was too tired to move. This is where I swam the second time but we could have stopped at many other places too. The beaches are pebbly or others prefer to jump in from big rocks along the shore.
