Our studio apartment "Margarita" is located in the old part of town Split, on the first floor of an authentic Dalmatian stone house. On the ground floor of the house there is a little fishing equipment store, belonging to a specialized store next to our house.
This part of Riva was dedicated to individual fishermen and their little boats. Some of them could be seen even today while preparing their nets and other equipment or coming back from fishing. Fishermen also use a little marina, 30 m from our apartment, for berthing and maintaining their small boats.
