Sinj is famous for its annual, one day Sinjska alka, a medieval joust that celebrates the townsfolk’s victory over the Ottomans – contestants, clad in eighteenth-century costume, gallop down a steeply sloping street at the southern end of town and attempt to thread their lances through a ring dangled from a rope. First recorded in 1715, the Alka is one of the few remaining examples of the contests that once took place in all the Adriatic towns. You will enjoy a guided tour of the town and visit the local Alka museum. For just one day a year, a riot of colour with spit roasts and local delicacies a-plenty. On the way, we’ll stop off at a number of places of local interest. We stop at Kamisac, the gorgeous River Sana flows through the village. Kamicak is famous for its Old Ottoman Castle located of the Sana River
Tickets for the main spectator stand are hard to get hold of so don’t miss the opportunity to sample some a truly authentic Croatian experience and one you’ll not forget.
