Matejuška has been for centuries a port for small boats owned by fishermen of Split, the residents of Veli Varoš set sail from there out to the sea to feed their families. Even today there are dozens of boats tied up there, their nets drying , bait being prepared, with a monument dedicated to…
Matejuška is a great place to have a beer with the locals! Of course you will buy your beer at the small beer shop - Mali dućan (don't let the size fool you - it's got a wide range of local and foreign beers).
The local young people go there in night to have a drink, talk, look at the sea and sometimes play guitar or sing. Grab a beer from a local store and enjoy like you are from Split :)
“Don't know the name of the restaurant, locals call it Piple. Small and cozy, great food at modest prices (10 Euros a meal).”
“Art gallery Galić usually exhibits photographs and modern art. The paintings can be very intriguing and are definitely worth a glance if you are strolling through the center.”
“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 restaurant started out as a place for locals, fishermen, sailors to get a hearty meal at anytime of the day. Nowadays the guests are more international, however the menu and portions remain very solidly down to earth. May be crowded in summer so go early to catch a table without waiting too long.”
