If you find yourself in Dalmatia at the beginning of August, do not miss Sinjska alka, one of the most beautiful events that testify to the rich cultural and historical heritage of Croatia. Sinjska Alka is a knightly competition which is being held from the 18th century in memory of the victory against the Turkish army. It has been listed on UNESCO's list of intangible world heritage since 2010. It is being held in Sinj, a town in the Dalmatian hinterland, located about a half-hour drive from Split. Contestants on horses must hit the center of the Alka, a small iron circle divided into three parts and hung on a rope across the racetrack, with the spear. The event lasts for three days and the winner is the one who manages to collect the most points.
