After World War II Croatia, as a republic of Yugoslavia, was behind the Iron Curtain (although independent of Soviet control) and under the radar of western travelers and international property buyers. Eastern Europeans regularly flocked to its Adriatic coast beaches, but it wasn’t until the 1990s that the rest of the world discovered what the buzz was about.

Croatia is a small country of outsized beauty. It boasts dramatic cliffs, Blue Flag beaches and more than a thousand islands. Its history under multiple powers and empires permeates architecture and made it a crossroad of culture and influence.

Today Croatia is a forward-facing country and one of the wealthiest of the former Yugoslav republics. Croatia joined the European Union in 2013, a move that made it easier for citizens of member nations to acquire property.

Real estate in the capital of Zagreb, inland on the Sava River, is well priced compared with its European counterparts. Charm-filled Upper Town is located on the slopes of Medvednica Mountain. Upper Town’s Strossmayer promenade is a popular spot for street festivals and concerts. The heart of Lower Town is the so-called Green Horseshoe, a series of parks and tree-lined squares.

Coastal properties draw the attention of most international buyers. Istria is the northwestern peninsula that’s been called the Tuscany of Croatia for its Italian influence. Istria was part of Italy between the two World Wars. From its historical coastal resort towns such as Porec, Rovinj, Umag and Pula, the rest of Europe is easy to reach. Nearby is the Kvarner Riviera with the fashionable resort of

Opatija, once the darling of Austro-Hungarian Empire elite and popular ever after.

The main city on the central Dalmatian coast is Split followed by Dubrovnik, the city George Bernard Shaw called the “Pearl of the Adriatic.”  Historic properties in the old part of the city where there is very little development are among the priciest in the country.
