“Absolutely beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

Very relaxed atmosphere with bars that look over the sea and marina. We spent time at the coffee bars watching sailing boats arrive and depart to the marina.

“In love at first sight..... :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The promenade of Split is located right in front of the harbor and is just a 5 minute walk from the Old town, bus and train stations and the ferry terminal.
The boulevard is always bustling with tourists and locals day and night. There are cafes lining one edge of the boardwalk whereas to the other edge you will see carts selling sweet dumplings with different flavors and they are amazing. We tried chocolate , cinnamon. You may also find popcorn stalls/ souvenir shops/handmade products for sale / fresh juices stand / books sellers/ children’s toys and on and on…..
Evening there are shows by many artist.

The walk way is quite broad floored with huge white titles and lined with Palm trees to give you a Mediterranean feel. Trendy benches at equal space to sit and watch people makes it a perfect place to enjoy the evenings. Beautiful to watch the sunset here. There is no way you would miss the Riva. One of the best promenade I ever visited. And I’m in love with the place.

“perfect for a walk by the sea”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

It is wonderful as it is all in one place pretty much. You have the harbor on one side, the Diocletian Palace on the other hand, and the palms and the architecture, the benches and the nice weather make it a great place to rest, walk or just enjoy the views.

“Spend an evening or two out here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Port/waterfront area of old split. Nice shops, pretty views, I recommend going here at sunset, grabbing an ice cream cone from one of the many shops near by, and enjoying a really nice evening. Relaxing. Well maintained.

“Marina Front Area with Shops and Eateries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

The Privi is considered the locals "living room". People of all ages will sit here for hours through the evening socializing. Before aircon was available it was intolerable to sit indoors at this time and the tradition kept on strong through the modern times.

Eateries, gelato vendors, souvenir shops, and part of the town wall are all set into this location. Some buskers will most likely be somewhere on the street.
Every night and day in Split will most likely involve at least one walk through this area.

Pleasant, relaxed, safe.
