According to information from the Ministry as reported in daily Jutarnji list, the property was picked up for a bargain. The building, which is located on Joseph II street in Brussel’s European quarter, was valued at 13.7 million euros 5 years ago. The building is 4078 m2 covering 6 floors and a 4-level basement/garage. The purchase price was 2,800 EUR per square metre. The Croatian government had been shelling out 18,760 EUR a month on rent for its Embassy and EU base in Belgium.
