    I recently came across your website & just love it. Negotiating croatian bureaucracy? OMG!
    My son in law is croatian by birth but only visits during summer & experiences endless grief around bureaucracy. I have passed on your website to him & he will very likely contact you for assistance. My query is about professional language schools. Can’t find one running month long group classes for summer 2022. Even Zagreb Uni won’t commit to running face to face classes until maybe May next year. Too late to organise travel OS for a month or so. Do you know any schools operating classes (in Split, preferably) around July 2022?
