As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Znjan beach is Split’s largest city beach, and at this moment in time, there are no more coffees or walks taking place there, and this summer there will be no swimming either. The much loved Split Znjan beach is turning into the city’s largest construction site. The Znjan beach area, which can be compared to around forty football pitches, will eventually boast numerous interesting recreational facilities, and the investment is worth an enormous 35 million euros, reports HRT.

“We inherited this project from our predecessors, the urban planners did everything necessary to bring it to the beginning, and I hope very soon, we’ll do the same to the end,” said the mayor of Split, Ivica Puljak.

“Recently, we signed a contract with the competent ministry whereby our company received a concession for a period of forty years. We’ve made sure we meet all the prerequisites, we’ve had all of the building permits, and now we’re drawing up all of the documentation for the tender, which they’ll announce soon, after which we’ll find contractors and start the works this spring,” said Puljak.

“We hope that these works will last for one year and that in the summer of 2024, the Split Znjan beach will really become the most beautiful beach in all of Croatia, and beyond, which all the citizens of Split will finally be proud of,” he said. However, this Znjan transformation isn’t the only project brewing, and plans are heading more towards the east coast, that is, to Split’s ferry port. That area is also set to undergo works as part of the wider Split east coast development plan, which also involves the much loved Riva (promenade).
