Dalmatian Klapa Festival

The Dalmatian klapa festival is a tradition longer than a half of a century that comes to life in the town of Omiš during the warm July nights with the sounds of the original klapa singing that was recognized and protected even by the UNESCO. Apart from Omiš, klapa performances are also held in other places in Dalmatia, for example Bol on Brač.
