Bačvice

“We are going to Bačvice…”, is tune often heard around the town, words of a joyous hymn to the municipal beach, officially designated as such in 1919.
Bačvice is a phenomenon of nature, a sandy beach at the heart of the city, in the vicinity of the city harbor, and it can accommodate over ten thousand people. During the low tides in springtime Bačvice turn into a split version of Copacabana where many famous soccer players first displayed their talent, where the rugby in Split was born, where even in wintertime a unique game of “picigin” is played (a sort of volleyball, played in the sea shallows with a small ball).
Bačvice today represents a best known promenade for all generations, and during nighttime is the favorite center of nightlife.

Radunica

Radun is an ancient Illyrian name for a water spring. Since day one Radunica was the main street of Lučac where, some five hundred years ago, old citizens of Split gathered while arriving from the Republic of Poljica. The streets were named after their surnames: Kuzmanić, Ninčivić, Kuzmić, Ružić, Bubalo, Trumbić, Duplančić, Dumanić, Petrić, Prvan, Vešanović, Dvornik, Čulič, and so on. Radunica became even more famous with its festivities during the Days of Radunica, traditionally happening in the last week of June, around St. Peters day.

Veli Varoš

Veli Varoš and Lučac keep the Split city core in a “historical sandwich”, competing for the title of the oldest suburbs. Citizens of Lučac boast with the ancient Illyrian toponym Radunice, while the citizens of Veli Varoš stress their ancientness climbing the Marjan hill above.
Veli Varoš abounds with well preserved local architecture and original local ambient. Walking uphill in Veli Varoš should be repeated couple of times in order to perceive the remainder of the games stones play up the steep streets and in order to catch all the details while looking over the rooftops from the Prva Vidilica (First Peak).
Among the best known architectural monuments the most famous is the Church of St. Mikula from the 11th century, on the lintel above the facade, next to the images of lionesses is the name of the citizen Ivan and his wife Tiha.
Let us mention once again also the churches that adorn Veli Varoš, church of Our Lady of Soca, the Holy Cross and St. Francis. Veli Varoš has been, until recently, the symbol of fishermen from Split who lived poorly of their daily sardines (Spli’ski akvarel, musical by Ivo Tijardović), while today real-estate prices in this part of the city have gone through the roof.
Many famous opera singers came from Veli Varoš, like Noa Matošić, Ante Marušić and Ratomir Kliškić, as well as Miljenko Smoje, the famous journalist and publicist.

Firule

Nobody has the lungomare, a promenade by the sea, like Split!
From the point of Marjan and the Oceanographic institute you can take a stroll along the sea all to the eastern marine city limits like: Bačvice, Ovčice, Firule, Zenta, Trstenik, Duilovo…
Because of its fine sand and natural shelter Firule have always proven to be especially interesting for mothers with young children.
A recreational pilgrimage to Firule grew more popular as the tennis center was organized here.
Nikola Pilić, Željko Franulović, Goran Ivaniševic learned their first serves here as well as Mario Ančić and Jelena Kostanić.

Bačvice

Idemo na Bačvice, poznata je himna splitskom kupalištu službeno otvorenom 1919. godine. Bačvice su prirodni fenomen, pješčana plaža u srcu grada, tu do gradske luke, koja može primiti i preko deset tisuća kupača. Pojavom proljetnih oseka Bačvice postaju splitska Copacabana na kojoj su započeli mnogi poznati nogometaši, na kojoj se rodio splitski ragbi, na kojoj se danas i ljeti i zimi redovito igra picigin. Bačvice su danas splitska šetnica svih uzrasta, a noću središte zabave mladih.

Radunica

Radun je staroilirski naziv za izvorište vode. Od prvih je dana Radunica bila središnja ulica Lučca oko koje su se, prije nekih petsto godina, okupljali stari Splićani nadolazeći iz Poljičke republike.
Njihove nazive nose ulice: Kuzmanića, Ninčevića, Kuzmića, Ružića, Bubala, Trumbića, Duplančića, Dumanića, Petrića, Prvana, Vešanovića, Dvornika, Čulića i tako redom.
Radunica je postala još popularnija s pučkom feštom DANI RADUNICE, koja se događa već godinama u posljednjem tjednu mjeseca lipnja, za svetoga Petra.

Veli Varoš

Veli Varoš i Lučac u “povijesnom sendviču” drže jezgru grada Splita, nadmećući se za titulu najstarijega predgrađa. Lučani se hvale staroilirskim toponimom Radunice, dok Velovarošani svoju prastarost pojašnjavaju okriljem Marjana, pod čijim su obroncima stisnuti.
Veli Varoš obiluje izvrsno sačuvanom pučkom arhitekturom i izvornim pučkim ambijentima. Velim Varošom treba polako šetati uzbrdo u više navrata, da bi se uočilo preostalu igru kamenja njegovih strmih kaleta te apsolviralo dojam pogledom po krovovima s Prve vidilice.
Medu arhitektonskim spomenicima najpoznatija je Crkva sv. Mikule iz XI. stoljeća, na čijem se portalu, pored likova lavica, nalaze imena građanina Ivana i supruge mu Tihe. Spomenimo još jednom crkve Gospe o’ Soca, Sveti Križ, Svetoga Franu koje krase Veli Varoš.
Veli Varoš je donedavno bio simbol splitskih ribara koji su mižerjasto živjeli od svakodnevne srdele (Spli’ski akvarel, opereta Ive Tijardovića), dok se danas njegov stambeni kvadrat prodaje po zlato.
Veli Varoš je dao Splitu operne pjevače Nou Matošića, Antu Marušića i Ratomira Kliškića te novinara i publicistu Miljenka Smoju.

Firule

Nitko nema lungomare, šetnju uz more, kao Split!
Od punte Marjana, od Oceanografskog instituta, šetnjom uz more možete stići sve do istočnih morskih gradskih granica: Bačvice, Ovčice, Firule, Zenta, Trstenik, Duilovo…
Firule su svojim finim pijeskom i prirodnom zatvorenošću uvale tradicijski privlačile majke s djecom.
Hodočašće Firulama posebice je buknulo dobrom organizacijom teniske škole, iz čijih su klupa slavno svijetom proigrali Nikola Pilić, Željko Franulović, Goran Ivanišević te danas Mario Ančić i Jelena Kostanić.
