Peskarija (fish market) and Pazar (market) are intended for those who like Mediterranean ambiance, while nature enthusiasts can go for a walk, run or a bike ride to the forested Marjan. Split is surrounded by miles of beaches and unlike most cities, other than pebble beaches, it also has sandy beaches among which one should definitely single out Bacvice Beach and the game of "picigin" that is played there in the shallow sea, be it summer or winter. Concerts, festivals, cultural, artistic and sports events in Split are an everyday occurrence. As economic, cultural, tourist and of course sports centre of Dalmatia, Split has ensured great accommodation capacities in hotels, boarding houses and apartments. Rooms and apartments can be found in the very centre of Split, and further south you will find hundreds of apartments and true apartment resorts.
