HERITAGE AND TRADITION: SINJ ALKA VIDEOS FROM 1931 AND 1969
Some things change, and some things stay the same…
One thing that has changed very little in over 300 years is an event in Sinj which takes place during the first weekend in August, an event which has taken place every year since 1715.
In that year, the heroic defenders of the town repulsed the Ottoman Turks after the Siege of Sinj, despite being greatly outnumbered. Their heroics are commemorated each year with the annual Alka tournament, which is the last knights tournament in Europe, and one which celebrates the brave Alka knights of Sinj.
It is a tradition which has changed little, as one can see from these rare video clips of previous Alka tournaments.
