The Universum team, Novigrad, IstriaBased in Novigrad, Universum offers real estate, building and tourist services along the north Istrian coast, focused on the region from Porec to Umag. It was founded by Ivan Catalano in 1998.

“We are specialists in this part of Istria,” explained consultant, Robert Andreašic, who works in both the real-estate and tourist parts of Universum. “By concentrating on this small, but highly sought-after area, we provide an intimate knowledge of the local market. If there is a property for sale here, we’ll know about it.”

“Buying a holiday home is far more than buying a house,” Robert continued. “You’re also buying the location. We know everything about Novigrad and its surrounding area, so can help you decide if this is the ideal location for you … and then find you your ideal house. We also provide all the help and services you may need to turn it into a perfect home.”

Robert’s enthusiasm for the region is infectious. “I love Novigrad,” he said, with a huge smile. “It is a very beautiful place, ideal for family holidays. It’s hard to put your finger on why it’s so special; I think it’s because it is what people imagine seaside towns should be like, and so rarely are. It’s picturesque, peaceful and relaxing, even in the height of summer: there are plenty of green spaces, beaches and great restaurants. During the summer, there’s also a lot of things happening, so it’s a great place to have holiday fun and dine well. Many of the people who buy through us have been coming on holiday here for many years, before eventually deciding to buy their own holiday home.”

As well as offering real estate and tourism services, Universum also offers a full range of construction services through its sister company Uni.Kom, also based in Novigrad.

Universum is situated on the edge of Novigrad harbour. It is easy to spot because its name is written in large letters on the side of the building.

To reach them by car: from the roundabout on the edge of Novigrad, turn towards the centre.  Park as soon as you can see the harbour. There is usually plenty of public parking: white spaces are free of charge, blue ones are paid from May until the end of September.  Universum is just a short stroll away, on the other side of the harbour.
