Although Split is located by the sea and is usually sunlit on Christmas, there is no lack of Christmas spirit. From the beginning of December to mid-January, on the Riva (the most famous and main promenade in Split), small huts are placed. During the December, these small huts become a favorite meeting point for the locals and their guests. In some huts you can find the bars offering mulled wine, domestic schnapps (rakija) and hot tea with the traditional Dalmatian specialties such as fritters and donuts. The rest of the huts are turned into a mini-stores where you can buy interesting souvenirs and local products from small producers such as desserts and drinks. At the center of Riva you will find the stage where the different performers take part every day so it is possible to enjoy the performances of local children's choirs, traditional Dalmatian groups (klapas), jazz musicians and many others.
