As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, a luxurious villa on sparkling Fifth Avenue in the heart of New York that once served as the embassy of the former Yugoslavia has now been sold, Dnevnik reports.

The sale of the former Yugoslavian Consulate building on Fifth Avenue in New York was reported by the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and according to the succession agreement, part of the money made from the sale is set to go to the Republic of Croatia as a former republic which belonged to the now defunct Yugoslavia.

The luxurious three-story building on Fifth Avenue in question was built back at the beginning of the last century was sold for fifty million euros, and the Republic of Croatia should get a cut of the sale amounting to little more than eleven million euros.
