The golden age of water polo in Split was the last decade of the 20th century. Jadran Split won two titles of the European champions in a row (1992 and 1993), while POSK Split clinched the winning trophy in the Champions Cup in 1999.
In the last few years, good water polo has been playing in Split again. Jadran is competing in the Champions League for the second consecutive season.
