When you mention Split to tourists, most of them immediately go ‘Riva’. No surprise there. This promenade, that is, the place where the Adriatic Sea meets the ancient city, is a popular symbol of Split thanks to its beauty and appeal recognized by numerous domestic and foreign tourists.
With a length of 250 meters and width of 55 meters, Riva truly is the main and most popular public square where a lot of events take place, such as sporting events, processions, festivals and celebrations. Not only that, it is the place where everyone can take a leisurely walk, no matter what time of day it is. Experts often say that this is made possible because of the architectural design and materials used in the construction process.
Today, Riva is the main promenade in Split, a place where people stop to (chit)chat over a cup of coffee. Can you picture Split without Riva?
The city at the foot of Marjan is full of attractions but Riva stands out from the crowd, and takes a special place in the life of locals.
