I am happy to greet you at the 3rd European Universities 3x3 Basketball Championship in Split, Croatia!
On behalf of the whole EUSA community, I would like to express my gratitude for inviting European student-athletes here. It’s a wonderful occasion to be together and experience the beauty of sport. I am pleased to see so many sport lovers, who share values of fair play, equal opportunities and education, promoted by EUSA.
European Universities Championships 2017 organized in 19 sports make it possible for student-athletes to get to know each other and challenge their skills in a friendly atmosphere. During such events we do more than just sport – we broaden our horizons, get to know other cultures, we promote healthy mind in a healthy body.
Being an organizer of such an event is challenging but rewarding. I know it’s a hard task, and I want to express my appreciation to the Organizing Committee and its partners for the great job they have done. And of course, my gratitude to the authorities for their auspices of this event.
I believe that this Championship will bring the participants positive experiences and good results. I am sure that the athletes will compete in a fair play manner, respecting the rules and their opponents and please the spectators with their performance.
I hope you will enjoy your stay, your achievements and your time spent in Split!

Without hiding their pride, the people of Split will tell you that this city is a city with a soul. Split lies on the Adriatic coast, central Dalmatia, surrounded by sea and mountains. The story of Split is already 17 centuries old, dating to the time the Roman Emperor Diocletian decided to build his Palace right on the peninsula near the great Roman city Salona.
Split can offer you numerous cultural happenings like film and theatre festivals, exhibitions, excellent museums and concerts, numerous clubs, bars and festivals. When you tire of the city bustle, there’s Marjan, with its forest, jogging trails, mountain climbing and biking, recreational terrains, but also the ancient churches. Also, we can’t forget the numerous beaches with extraordinarily clean sea, from the well known Bačvice to the stone secluded oases’ all around Marjan.
University of Split is member of many association, such as European University Association, International Association of Universities, Unimed, Danube Rector’s Conference and Inter University Centre Dubrovnik. Also, we are offering different exchange programmes, so you are more then welcome to visit us again as a part of Erasmus, Erasmus Mundus, Ceepus or Tempus.
