The Fish Market is, just like Pazar, one of the central points of the city life of Split, but also an interesting architectural monument, built over 120 years ago in Secession style. It is important to note that its meaning for the citizens of Split greatly transcends this merely "physical" dimension. All that the Adriatic sea can offer comes to its tables, from sprats, picarels, sardines, mackerels, to more expensive redscorpion fish, dentex, red porgy, sea bass, lobsters, sea shells... The only thing that's missing are flies, it seems that they don't care for the smell of sulphur coming from the neighbouring spa, one of the reasons why Diocletian, burdened by rheumatism, chose exactly this place to build his Palace. Just like on Pazar, the Fish Market, or Peškarija, as the locals call it, will make you feel the affiliation of Split and Dalmatia to the Mediterranean, its culture and civilization.
Peškarija has become too small for Split long time ago, but it is too valuable for the preservation of the city's spirit for anyone to even think of giving it up. The visitors coming to the fish market for their "portion" of Split are also very aware of this fact.

If you want to witness the locals go about their daily routine at this impressive fish market, then make sure you do so by visiting early in the morning, when the hustle and bustle is in full flow. The official opening times of the market is from 6.30am to 14.00pm and is a great place to come for your daily shop if you're staying somewhere with self-catering facilities. The markets sells just about everything you could desire from a fish market and is a fascinating place to have a quick explore if you can stand the smell.
