The Alka of Sinj museum

The Alka is held once a year, on Sunday in the first half of August, so that the Bara and Čoja may take place in the same month.
The Alka is held only in Sinj and only at the racecourse called the Alkars’ Racecourse, where the tournament has been held since its establishment. The starting point of the alkars’ racecourse is “Biljeg”, at the intersection of Split – Vrlika roads near Big Bridge on the Gorućica stream, and the end of it is at the foot of Petrovac.

The permanent exhibition of the Alka of Sinj museum meets the highest museum standards, both in terms of presentation and technology, and stands side by side with the finest museums in the Republic of Croatia. The museum display includes a wide variety of uniforms, equipment and weapons used by the alkars of Sinj, together with Alka statutes and rulebooks presented in modern digital form.

The story told by the archive materials is an indispensable part of the history of Sinj and Cetinska Krajina, as well as of the history of the Republic of Croatia in its entirety. The basic guiding principle is to bring each visitor closer to this valuable cultural heritage, whose impor­tance has also been recognised by UNESCO.

As of yet, it has never been possible to experi­ence everything about the Alka of Sinj in one place – however, the Alka of Sinj museum will now provide all who are interested with this unique opportunity.
