Franc Arman with Franc Arman Teran Barrique Wine

Franc Arman with a bottle of his award winning Franc Arman Teran Barrique from Istria. Teran wine from Istria Croatia has been banned by the EU.

The pre-emptive strike by the Slovenia government, which started as early as 2009, on Croatian and Italian wine producers, by registering the wine ‘Teran’ name as being a Protected Designation of Origin for the Kras region of Slovenia, is astonishing in its brazenness and absurdity:

“The European Commission said on Monday that Croatian producers cannot sell wine under the name of Teran, which is recognised as originating in Slovenia’s Kras under protected designation of origin. After Croatia joins the EU in July, the sale of Teran-labelled wine from the country will also not be allowed in Croatia.

Legal update for Investors in Croatian Real Estate

The Embassy of the Republic of Croatia in association with CMS Zagreb will be giving a presentation on Croatia and EU Legislation and in particular one of the topics will be:

 How will Croatian accession to EU change real estate investments in Croatia?"  Good question!

If you invested in the residential property market in Croatia after 2007, buying an apartment or villa for rental to tourists, it is very likely that you were caught-up in what became known as the ‘Categorisation Issue’, which made it extremely difficult if not impossible for foreign nationals who owned property in Croatia to obtain a tourist rental licence for their property.  

Croatian nationals who own property in Croatia as a private citizen are not subject to the same conditions.

So this presentation will be a useful opportunity for foreign nationals still ensnared by the Categorisation Issue to find out if Croatia joining the EU changes anything and levels the playing field as is hoped by many foreign investors.

The colour publication systematically lists by venue, such as the National Gallery or the British Museum, the name of the Croatian artist and their artworks that can be found there. A few taster pictures of paintings, metal work, posters and textiles are included in the 32 page clearly laid out catalogue of Croatian artwork that can be easily viewed in the UK.
