Vaterpolski Klub Jadran (Water Polo Club Jadran) is a water polo club from Split, Croatia.

History[edit]

Jadran was founded in 1920 originally called "Pomorski klub Baluni" which changed to "Jadran Split" almost the year after the winning of the first national championship in 1923. Immediately after the Second World War (1946-60) the club topped the league six times, two of these (1947, 1948) as the water polo section of the famous multi-sports club of Hajduk Split. Thirty years later Jadran returned powerfully to the forefront in 1991 by winning the last league of united Yugoslavia, followed by two consecutive conquests of the European Championship in 1992 and 1993 as a representative value of the newly independent Croatia. The 1997-98 season found Jadran in another one European cup final but this time lost the LEN Trophy from Partizan.
