Riva is heart of the Split as it is for any Mediterranean city as only few do not have waterfront. Eastern part is communication hub with ferries and bus station and train station. Western part is newly renovated and very beautiful. What I recommend is to walk from Bacvice beach and then pass whole Riva, in afternoon or night preferably.... More

This will show you the local culture.. Take a walk and grab a drink or an ice-cream. Enjoy especially if the weather is nice.

Just lovely a fantastic evening place to stroll along or have a drink in one of the many bars, perfect for people watching.

A very beautiful waterfront at the centre of Split. We visited this place a few times and found it very interesting but crowded in the evening. Full of nice restaurants, souvenir shops and coffee shops. A nice sunny morning with a cuppa coffee at this waterfront was worth experience. Take some memorable pictures at this beautiful place.

The Riva, famous for the view, culture and strolling up and down to catch a glimpse of the culture of the Croatian coastline.

This place is a mix of two different ideas... On the inside of the riva toward the shops, it is more hustle and bustle, music, people laughing and enjoying the social aspect of the riva. In front is the harbour, the people are having coffee and looking our over the water contemplating.... Well... Who knows!

When you walk at time of the sunset, I think is very nice place, expecially in winter sunny days and there are few people around. Not very good during the Christmas period for me, because there are a lot of people concentrated in this place, full of bar and small wood houses to sell for the most( unfortunately) ....drinks ,...

Zadar has a better promenade. And a view of the sunset as well. Split is beautiful because of its old town.

Take a walk along the harbour when the sun starts to set. There will be many many tourists along the pier as they have restaurants and bars along the way, but you should be able to find a place to sit for a drink or a coffee or maybe an icecream?
