The Sinj Alka tournament celebrated its 300th anniversary last year. With plenty of events, exhibitions and presentations (including one in Brussels and another one in the United States), it was a wonderful celebration of a unique UNESCO protected event.

And there will be another opportunity to present the Alka, this time at the United Nations Headquarters in New York. Here is an announcement from the Sinj Alka Knights Association:

In cooperation with His Excellency Vladimir Drobnjak, Ambassador and Permanent Representative of the Republic of Croatia to the United Nations in New York, the Alka Knights Association organizes a presentation of the Sinj Alka at the United Nations Headquarters in New York through an exhibition “Sinj Alka – 300 years”.

The opening ceremony of the exhibition will take place on Tuesday, March 29, 2016 at 18.00. Around hundred invited guests are expected from the UN and from the New York City administration. An Alka knight in Alka uniforms will be present. The exhibition will be open until April 8, 2016.

This project was financed by the Croatian Tourist Board and the Croatian House Foundation by the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs.
