When walking on Riva bit further to the west, we stummbeled upon an open-air photo exhibition of Croatian landmarks taken from air. It was put by National Geographic, and panels were accompanied by educational text touching upon each scene. It was lovely to see bits of other-than-Dalmatia Croatian regions.

As one of Adriatic’s most fascinating ports, and the pumping heart of the Dalmatian coast, it’s no surprise that tourists and locals alike flock to Split for that relaxing vacation they have been looking for. The Riva (Split’s seafront promenade) is an absolute beauty on its own, with clear turquoise waters where many yachts and boats sit calmly and peacefully... More

The Riva is populated mainly by café/ bars but they are all furnished well and do not overcharge bearing in mind their location. There is always a lot going on along the promenade and you may even come across a couple of gladiators. For the price of a coffee (usually less than £1) you can while away an hour in... More

The central part of the RIva is beautiful and you can eat drink or just sit and watch the world go by. At either end it is less lovely although with a bit of care it could be one of the most stunning waterfronts in this part of Europe.

Riva Harbour is a lovely area where one can sit and relax, while taking in the magnificent scenery and enjoying the vibrant atmosphere. The boats and ferries on the harbour provide a constantly changing and interesting view. We enjoyed a lovely stroll along the promenade while waiting for our boat to Trogir. A very pleasant way to take advantage of... More

A place where you can sit and relax and even drink. We love getting their freshly warm donuts, crepes and fried dough for a great price. It's at the north side of the harbour.

A gorgeous promenade where you can enjoy a stroll. Stop by one of the many cafes and enjoy a cold drink or ice cream.
