The Belgian photojournalist then visited the town of Sinj, where Monika Vrgoč, director of the Sinj Tourist Board welcomed him. The tour of the city started at King Tomislav Square by the bronze gate of the Church of the Miraculous Lady of Sinj, done by the work of the academic sculptor Stipe Sikirica. The tour then continued to the antique statue of Gaj Laberia on Vrlička Street to discover the “beginnings” of football in the Cetina Region. Van Driessche was delighted by the modern and interactive design of the Sinjska Alka Museum.
