Split offers visitors a great New Year Celebration, head to Riva for the big live music concert and party along with fireworks (all free) the fireworks look fantastic over the water.

it will get pretty busy, but you can party well into the wee small
hours of the new year and there are many small shops and bakeries
open late into the night too if you get a bit peckish.
