A medieval competition held each year the first Sunday in August in the town Sinj. It’s origin stems as a victory celebration over the Ottomans in the year 1715. The Alka itself is an equestrian competition in which various horsemen riding at full gallop aim their lances at a hanging metal ring (Alka), and are awarded points according to which sector of the ring they are able to pierce. The knights are all dressed in beautiful traditional costumes, and only men born in Sinj and surrounding villages are allowed to participate in the tournament.
Throughout the year you can experience the Sinjska Alka in the new (2015) Alka museum that was opened to mark the 300 years of celebrating the festival.
