After extensive training at the Sinj hippodrome and the Sinjsko polje plains, the Alkars continue preparations at the Alka racecourse from today, July 14.
Every day from Monday to Friday, from 18:00 to 20:00, you can be a part of the unique preparations and see how the Alkars sharpen their eagle eye and adjust their right hand. This also helps the horses at the Alka stable get used to the lively environment and the sand of the Alka track.
As August and the Alka festivities approach, the whole of Sinj beats to the rhythm of the marching bands of the City Music and the galloping of horses. The streets of the city that lives for Alka, the flagship of UNESCO and Croatian and world intangible heritage, are buzzing.
It all starts on Friday, August 5 at 17:30 with the competition for the 307th Bara. The 307th Čoja will follow on Saturday, August 6, also at 17:30, and on Sunday, August 7, at 16:30, Alkars will fight to win and mark their name in the Alka’s long and rich history.
Entrance to the training, as well as to Bara and Čoja, is free. Don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of these unique events in the world and participate live in the Sinjska Alka preparations!
