Go here, take čevapi (chevapi) with onion and chese OR ajvar - pepper source. One of the oldest street food in these parts. It has I think turkish/bosnian roots, but its been here for so long it became our local food. Its meat - minced veal shaped like small sticks, I think they call them baby veal fingers :) Best for hungover :)

This is a top restaurant in terms of food quality and the price. It got one or two Michellin stars. Very close to our house.

Bars and restaurants are different concepts

Restaurants - eating is a must, no smoking, seated on the tables, quiet atmosphere, booking is advisable Bars - no food, just drinking, smoking allowed, load music, tables provided but also standing around is ok, no booking needed
Tavat ja kulttuuri

Driving bikes - be careful and be visible

No strict laws about these, BUT regular drivers in Split are not 100% used to see bikes on the road yet. I always: - drive a bike on a pedestrian lane/zone rather then on roads (especially fast roads) - do not drive a bicycle drunk (you can be fined) - always safety first (wear helmets and have proper visibility)
