Bačvice Beach

Located in the city center, near the city port, Bačvice is an unique shallow sandy beach. The beach is about 600 meters long and can hold the capacity of up to ten thousand bathers. The beach is also known for the making of the authentic sport picigin (water volleyball) around 1923, which has become a protected immaterial good in 2003. The World Cup in water volleyball is annually held in Split. Over time, picigin spread to other coastal towns, where local, alternate versions developed. On Bačvice, picigin is played in the summer and winter.

    evo dio jednog zanimljivog clanka (radi se o britanskoj stranici)

    … “For many of its inhabitants Split is not so much a city as a religion, centred around a collection of semi-mystic locations. Among the holiest of holies is undoubtedly Bačvice beach, a shallow bay of sand and shingle that has played an important role in the early childhood and teenage years of virtually anyone who has ever called the city home. Immensely popular as a family beach, it’s also a buzzing social hub, with a café-packed pleasure pavilion rising immediately to the east. Bačvice is also famous for being the spiritual home of picigin, a uniquely Dalmatian sport that involves a lot of acrobatic leaping around as players try to prevent a small ball from hitting the water.”
