Sinj Alka Knight Parade: First Time Ever in Split

Total Croatia News

If you are looking for an example of the best tourism promotion in Croatia this summer, look no further than the 300th Alka Knights Tournament in Sinj. 

The historic tri-centinary event, marking the anniversary of the pivotal 1715 Siege of Sinj, attracts a visit of various dignitaries every year, including the Croatian President, and is broadcast live on national television. But 300 is 300, and there have already been Alka parades in Brussels and Zagreb, while the energetic Sinj Tourist Board toured Chicago and New York earlier this summer promoting the event and the tradition.

And now it is the turn of Split… 

For the first time ever, there will be an Alka parade in the Dalmatian capital, as 120 Alkar knights and their entourage, accompanied by 25 Alka horses will parade form on Monday, July 6 at 1900, along West Coast Riva to the main riva. 

It will no doubt be a spectacular event, and a reminder of the importance of the siege in the region’s history. 

There will be two Sinj Tourist Board information points on the riva, so you can learn more about Alka and the town of Sinj. Check out the UNESCO-pretoected event in the official video below, and follow the Sinj Tourist Board on Facebook
