But really, how does one live like a local in Split? Here is the perspective of two foreigners: Noe Rios and Adam Lauer.
Noe Rios and Adam Lauer – two Huffington Post contributors who call Split one of the most beautiful cities they have visited in all of their travels – discuss what one must do in order to live like a local in the city on February 3, 2017.
Having visited the Dalmatian city in the low season (which they highly recommend) they praised the fewer tourists as it enabled them to do and see more, and the weather wasn’t too shabby either. After naming Diocletian’s Palace, Marjan Forest, Old Split, and Klis Fortress as the must-see tourist attractions in the area – the duo delved into what the local life looks like in Split, outside of the busy crowds.
First things first, although breakfast is known as the most important meal of the day, don’t be fooled when the hundreds of cafes in Split serve anything but breakfast. Living like a local tip number one? “Breakfast in Split consists of cigarettes, coffee, and water.”
In an effort to keep your body on point, and to keep up with the fact that “everyone in Split is hot”, the duo suggests playing a traditional game of Picigin at Bačvice beach, and getting a haircut at Ritual Salon.
In the event that you need to get some work done, the newly opened co-working space WIP on Žnjan is your best best, and the best local hangouts for a drink in the low season? Sanctuary and Jazzbina were their chosen go-to weeknight haunts.
An interesting observation by the two – how do you live like a local in Split?
