The Netherlands (this is the name of the country that we often call “Holland”) has long been experiencing a tourist boom. This country fascinates with its sophistication, attracts with unconventionality and chic, worthy of prim European. The ancient city of Amsterdam noticeably wins compared to other European capitals due to the preservation of its unusual color and calm measured life of the population.
The Netherlands is happy to open its arms to potential buyers of real estate in the country, offering attractive tax conditions. Perhaps these are the most favorable conditions on a pan-European background. The tax rate on property is only 6% – this is incomparable with the conditions of such countries as Spain, France, Italy, where the buyer of real estate is forced to pay from 7 to 9% of the total value of the acquired property.
Choosing a property in a different price category, in any case, you will not be left without profit. There is high demand in this segment. Amsterdam is a relatively small city. In the country, especially in the capital, every piece of land counts. In the city itself, houses are very close to each other.

Montenegro has been attracting the views and attention of Russians for about fifteen years, many of which consider this country not only as a vacation destination, but also as a “distant summer residence” or country of permanent residence. Let’s try to understand all aspects of this interest.

It’s funny that, having made such a decision, the Montenegrin authorities did not bother to ask the European Bank about it. Due to various factors, the government decided to increase the budget revenues mainly due to revenues from tourism and recreation. This is where one of the reasons for the interest lies for Russians, for whom entry into Montenegro has become visa-free. Continue reading
From ancient times, water attracted people. After all, this is not just a source of life, but part of our daily routine. We cannot do without her even a day! Among people there are many admirers and lovers of the aquatic environment. Especially dreamers to live near her, and possibly on her!
House on the water …
After all, it is no secret to anyone that living on water is possible and this is quite real. Take at least the same Venice, China or Thailand. In China, due to lack of land, people are forced to not only live in boat houses, but also to grow plants in them and store things! In Europe, there are also settlements from boat houses (“houseboats”). They were first built in Britain back in the 18th century to transport various raw materials. Today, about 15 thousand people live on water in Britain. Such settlements on the water are in Germany. They are even equipped with their own church. Houseboats are also very popular in the Netherlands. Here, houseboats are considered a tourist attraction. You can also see these unusual houses off the coast of the canals of Amsterdam. But initially, houseboats were built due to the fact that people simply did not have enough housing on land, especially after the Second World War. Continue reading
