Croatia Online News - Trogir and Real Estate

Just as we have a flurry of interesting postings and pictures to put up on the site, our blogger hosts have a few gremlins in the works, which means no photos until the problem is solved. So it’s words only for the time being and just a few snippets of the goodies to come:

Learning Croatian - Trogir

A new language school has opened up in Trogir, co-owned by the very dedicated and patient Ivana Rogulj, who has been assisting Croatia Online’s editor in the art of learning Croatian. It’s called Katedra and located in a classic building on the south west corner of the Cathedral Square in Trogir. Apart from teaching Croatian, the school offers courses in English, Italian, German, French, Russian and Spanish. Katedra, Gradska 35, Trogir, is well signed from the square so check it out if you are in the area and in need a new challenge for the autumn. More details soon.

Hotel and Restaurant with a Difference in Trogir

Just by the new pedestrian bridge, on the mainland sign of town, Hotel Pašike and the restaurant of the same name deserve full marks for trying to offer something new. The restaurant has been around for a while but had a facelift in 2004 when the owners decided to convert their old townhouse into a family hotel. The hotel bedrooms are tastefully furnished with antiques but offer all mod cons. Prices vary from 800 kunas for a double room to 1200 kunas for the apartment based on 2 people sharing in the high season. The restaurant has a large and colourful terrace with tables and chairs draped in gold, green, brown and yellow covers. Waitresses are dressed in traditional costume, we listened to a great guitar and mandolin duo, and the varied menu has a number of traditional local dishes. It was packed when we visited on Saturday night and that’s probably not the best day of the week to try out a new place – the two very friendly waitresses seemed a little overstretched, the food was ok rather than great, and it’s a little pricier than many of its neighbours. However the customers seemed to be enjoying themselves and there was a constant stream of new arrivals for the hotel. Go to for more information.

New Regulations for Real Estate Agencies in Croatia

It seems that the Croatian Government is looking to regulate real estate agencies quite severely in the coming months. A one month course and exams will be amongst the requirements necessary to gain a licence. The details are still being ironed out so we’ll be updating you on this once we have more information.

Hopefully the weather where you are is better than the weather in the Split area for the last few days - thunder, lightening, strong south winds and heavy rain. Looks like there is more to come but we're not complaining too much as, just before, we had over a week of almost perfect summer weather and a lovely warm Adriatic to swim in.
