article imageMore style for Croatian tourism: West Coast riva opens in Split

By Paul Bradbury     Apr 26, 2013 in Travel
The Dalmatian capital of Split is undergoing a tourism boom, and the opening of a West Coast riva adds a further dash of glamour.
In the latest piece of good news for the city of Split, a new section of picturesque waterfront was opened amid great fanfare on April 25, 2013 according to local reports, including the arrival of Mayor Zeljko Kerum by jetski.
The 600m stretch of coast from the ACI Marina has received a major facelift, and now comprises palm trees, interactive water fountains, teak benches and sunbeds, designer bike racks and a biking lane. There are also additional berthing positions and a refuelling facility for yachts, which should increase sailing traffic to the city.
With EU entry just over two months away, Split is undergoing a tourism boom, with an increasingly longer season. Once known as the gateway to the islands, tourists are now staying longer in the city, as they discover its varied attractions, from the secrets of 1700 year-old Diocletian's Palace to the relaxed way of life in the city's waterfront cafes, something which will only increase with yesterday's opening.
There has been a significant increase in flight announcements in recent weeks, and Split airport will this summer handle flights from 43 airlines, servicing 80 destinations, a number that will surely increase once Croatia is in the European Union.
An aerial overview of the West Coast riva, filmed two months ago, can be found below.
