Beach attire will only be allowed at the beach from now in Split…
The Split City Council have followed the lead of Dubrovnik City Council and has adopted a new bylaw which will see tourists and locals hit with a fine for walking around the town shirtless or in their bikinis.
Last week the Dubrovnik City Council announced a bylaw which would mean fines (1,000 kuna or €133) now for those walking in the old town of Dubrovnik “in a swim suit or without their clothes or part of their clothes”.
Now Split, one of the main tourist hubs on the Croatian coast, have followed suit. Signs have gone up around the town showing which attire is not appropriate on the town’s streets.
Deputy Mayor Goran Kovačević told daily Slobodna Dalmacija that tourists breaching the dress code will be first warned, before being slapped with fines.
