Should you plan your holiday for the beginning of August, then your inevitable stop will be Sinj, which becomes a stage for a hundreds of year’s old knights Tournament Sinjska Alka. Sinjska alka is a knights equestrian competition, in which horse riders, at full gallop and holding an almost three metre long pole, aim at an iron ring (alka), which hangs on a rope across the race track. This is a time of the year when the inhabitants of Sinj proudly live their old tradition, which unites the past, present and future and which is under the UNESCO auspices, as a world non-material heritage.
