The people of Sinj are a very proud people, and with good reason. Due to their heroics at the Siege of Sinj, they halted the Ottoman advance, an event which is marked each year with the fantastic Sinj Alka, the last remaining knights’ tournament in all Europe.
Spend a little time in Sinj, and you will realise just how proud they are. For them, Sinj has the best of everything! Including swimming.
While the majority of tourists to Central Dalmatia head to the inviting Adriatic, the people of Sinj swear by the Sinj City Pool, which has just opened for the season and is already very busy.
Open until the beginning of September, the open air pool is an excellent way to cool off if you are staying in the interior, without having to drive all the way to the coast.
Ticket prices for the pool are the same as last year. Children and adults can swim from 9 am to 12 pm for 10 kuna and from 12 pm to 9 pm it is 10 kuna plus a surcharge of 5 kuna for each subsequent hour of swimming. Pensioners pay 5 kuna from 9 am to 12 pm, or 5 kuna per hour for swimming from 12 pm to 9 pm. Children up to 5 years are free of charge. You can also buy a monthly pass for 200 kuna, which allows you to swim every day for one hour.
This year, the swimming pool will have training for non-swimmers and swimming lessons for children who want to learn more about swimming techniques.
