Croatia is one of the world’s newest countries, emerging from the homeland war which ended in 1995. Since then, major redevelopment and investment in national infrastructure is helping to create a modern country with exciting opportunities for the future.
The Croatian people are renowned for their love of their beautiful country and warm welcome offered to visitors. From one point of view, Croatia is not a new country at all as it dates back to the 6th century when it had its own monarchy, and even at that time the people were know for their hospitality.
Croatia’s geographical location enables it to offer visitors a wide choice of scenery and activities ranging from skiing in the mountains in winter, to relaxing on one of its thousands of beaches in summer. Its 6000km of coastline and calm, crystal clear turquoise sea, makes it a paradise for sailing and island hopping. The coastline is rugged and beautiful, and varies from lush green pine trees contrasting with white stony beaches to dramatic cliffs rising from the sea.
For property investors, the choice of locations is almost endless. Quiet fishing villages offer a great ‘get away from it all’ retreat, whilst popular coastal and island holiday resorts offer a wide choice of activities and restaurants/café bars, or you can choose to just relax, maybe do a little people watching! In addition, there are still plenty of opportunities for new developments for small and major investors.
For anyone considering purchasing property in Croatia, now is a very good time! Property prices are on the increase, the last 12 months has seen prices rise by 20% or more and the demand for property continues to grow. New building restrictions, planned by the government, will restrict the future growth of villages and towns in an effort to retain the unique beauty of Croatia’s coastline. Lessons have been learned from other Mediterranean countries and Croatia is determined not to make the same mistakes. This can only be good news for tourists and investors alike!
