Seven years after the opening of bankruptcy in the Croatian Olympic Center Bjelolasica and twenty attempts to sell it in the relevant tenders, the Slovak company Bioelectro Energy is in the process of buying the center for four million and 578 thousand kuna, reports Jutarnji list.
Namely, the High Commercial Court these days rejected the appeal of the Zagreb company Benek against the decision of the Commercial Court in Zagreb from October last year to accept Bioelektro Energy's offer in the last tender for the sale of HOC as the most favorable. In this way, the conditions were created for the Slovak buyer to conclude a contract with the state on the sale of HOC Bjelolasica.
If the expected sale takes place, HOC could finally see the light at the end of the tunnel and some better future.
Bjelolasica is the Croatian Olympic Center and the largest Croatian ski resort, located in Gorski Kotar 26 km from Ogulin. Although beautiful in all seasons, it is especially tempting in winter with 6 ski slopes and a huge toboggan run Tintilinić which is located at the foot as well as a tourist resort.
It is about 80 hectares of land in untouched nature surrounded by forest, clean air, with all the infrastructure, electricity, water, heating system, on which eight pavilions were built. There was also a restaurant, an attractive ski resort, sports fields, children's playgrounds and other facilities that are now devastated.
Although the whole story should be seen outside the winter zone, on the example of Austria, Slovenia and other positive examples where a large part of tourist traffic is realized in the summer through different tourist products. For now, there is no information on future plans to revitalize the HOC from the new potential owners.
