I was amazed at this spectacular waterfront area. It is a beautiful landscape, a lively place with lots of restaurants where people eat, talk and have drinks, just at the entrance to the Old Town of Split.

You can walk the wide promenade or sit at one of the many restaurants with a cool drink...always a great spot for people watching! All paths lead to the harbor so you'll find it to be the perfect...

The Riva started to look the way it does today two centuries ago, when the French, in time of Napoleon ruled these parts through Marshal Marmont. Today this promenade is the cities living room, the most popular and most important public place in Split.

Great place to either stroll around, or sit and watch those who are. Full of life, bars, restaurants and with great views out to sea, we made it a daily ritual to enjoy before and after dinner.

Riva Harbor fronts Split's Old Town and the public spaces speak well of the city's interest in creating welcoming spaces. This stretch of beautifully landscaped scenery separates the marina from the Old Town of Split.
