Taking your time to wander around the city leads itself to the discovery of beautiful squares, such as Republic Square, which is very Venetian in its styling. Although it was practically empty when we visited it is a popular space for events throughout the summer.

Just stopped here for a quick drink. Staff were very attentive and we did consider staying for lunch. The dish’s being brought from the kitchen looked very good, however we had arranged to meet at another restaurant

Similar to St Marks square in Venice, although the arches remind me a little of St. Petersburg too. A good place to find shade and a cold drink, if you’re visiting Split in the summer. Fewer tourists than many other areas too. If you’re lucky...More

Beautiful plaza with red building facade all around. It is the place for live music and other performances. You must go there if you are strolling through the old city and to Riva.

It is a nice plaza but nothing more. Walk by IF you are just walking around. It is a part of THE nice area in town.
