  • Along the riva at night, this place becomes a party place as there are maybe boat parties and drunk young teenagers shouting in their own language. It is really lit and really good party place for tee...  more »
  • Sure, every visitor should even run along the promenade and enjoy an ice cream or even lunch. The care leaves much to be desired. On the water in places heavily smells drain and the courses are littered in places and smeared with graffiti. Very embarrassing for the second largest city in Croatia.

  • Strolling the Riva it seems, with less size, that you are walking along the promenade of playa Levante Benidorm. All bars and restaurants with waiters to the onslaught of tourists (luckily there was no paellas). Otherwise a typical walk punctuated occasionally by facades of buildings with character although covered by posters and neon lights of the catering business. Well to give a paseíllo, view the environment and eat a rich ice cream.

Where to stay in Split

Split and its surrounding area boast an extensive system of private accommodations for rent, which range from simply furnished rooms to elegantly outfitted multi-room apartments. Many locals approach travelers at the main bus station with offers of available lodgings, but before you agree to anything, make sure you know the room's exact location in reference to the town center.
