Riviera Split

The Split Riviera is situated in Central Dalmatia along with the central city of Split. The region is surrounding by the bordering the Mosor mountains and Kozjak. Nestled between these two features is the Klis fortress, the "key of Dalmatia". The Klis fortress is situated on a mountain saddle, from where the most important trade routes could be observed and monitored and where the border between Venice and the Ottoman Empire was located. In the northwest the Split Riviera borders the Trogir Riviera and Kastela and to the southeast it is bordered by the Omis Riviera. The Riviera has a favorable position from which to explore the Split Riviera itself and the surrounding areas and islands. This is especially made possible by the regular ferry service. Split itself has the largest port, where the ferries begin their service routes to the islands and to Italy. The Riviera exudes a very maritime character and is home to a number of yachts and marinas. Here, visitors find some interesting places such as the Amphitheater of Solin or the old town of Split, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. All along the coast are picturesque villages with beautiful beaches and bays perfect for swimming- all added up, this makes a perfect holiday.

Besides bathing and swimming at the Bacvice beach, you can play Picigin, a local game of skill played with a small ball. A few kilometers away is Stobrec, a picturesque coastal town, which was originally a defense and border town between the Ottoman Empire and Venice. Another highlight is Solin. You can still see buildings such as the amphitheater (in Solin) which was of importance to the city. From Stobrec you can travel along the coast to Podstrana. Here the extensive pebble beaches are very alluring for swimming. The region just invites you to explore its cities and attractions, such as Trogir and the Cathedral of St. Lovre, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The journey can be done via the Split airport and with your own car. The transportation network is very well developed and there is a direct connection to the motorway. From the Split airport it is possible to ride or travel from there directly to the towns of the Split Riviera with public transportation or a rental car.

The Split Riviera offers a lot more than just a holiday and sunbathing. One can find a wide range of sports facilities and stunning nature that magically lures visitors with its grottos, caves and canyons. And let's not forget that its unique fauna and flora also puts tourists under its spell. In addition, the region offers an abundance of year-round sun.
