This neat and clean promenade with tens of restaurants is ideal for sitting down with a nice drink just to watch people walking by. You can also catch a sightseeing bus from here, or take a boat trip to one of the beautiful islands.

A hundred years later, the indigenous plant species were replaced by palm trees, and the new big change comes pretkraj 20th century when Riva finally closed to traffic. This is part of the split that you can not miss no matter from which... More

There is plenty to sit and see here between the people and the boats coming in and out. You can spend as much or as little time as you have, but definitely do at least a walk by.

A great (and remarkably clean) harbour with cafes all along the esplanade. We enjoyed having coffee (any time of day or night) and just watching the parade of life passing. The harbour is beatifically any time of day but especially at sunset. For a coffee (a handful of Kuna) its a worthwhile stop.

This is a busy harbour with ferries, cruise ships, working boat and coastal cruisers coming and going all the time. Walk from one end to the other, spend some time in one of the cafes on the east side and watch the locals and tourists as they work and sightsee.

Choose one of the stone seats, and enjoy the amazing landscape, the white of the marble, the fantastic blue sea, the cruise ships, the palace. If you like beer, ask for an iced Karlovacka, or instead, try the famous croatian ice cream.

A brilliant place to hang out either at the many cafes and restaurants or on the harbour wall. You'll probably end up here a lot!
