Get to Know Your Country: Free Guided Tour Successfully Held in Sinj

By 13 January 2020

January 13, 2020 - To mark the International Recognition Day of the Republic of Croatia, and as part of the project "Get to Know Your Country", on Sunday, January 12, 2020, a free guided tour was successfully held in the town of Sinj.


The action was launched by the Croatian Tourist Guide Association (ZDTVH) with the support of the Croatian National Tourist Board. The Sinj City Tourist Board, together with the Sini - Osinium Association of Tour Guides, also joined the action. In all the cities involved - 50 this year - free tourist guides began at exactly the same time, at noon.


As part of the action, the participants toured numerous city sights accompanied by local tour guide Nenad Pavic. This year, the group planned to visit the Grad fortress and the Sinjska Alka Museum. However, the group could not visit the Sinjska Alka Museum, as the electricity supply in Sinj was temporarily interrupted.


Therefore, instead of the Sinjska Alka Museum, a tour of the Kamičak fort followed. A special surprise to all participants was the presence of ZDTVH President Mrs. Kristina Nuić Prka, who is one of the initiators of this action and many other similar projects. 


During the three-hour guided tour, the participants from the cities of Solin, Split, Trogir, Vodice and Sinj were able to learn more about the town of Sinj, its inhabitants, history, and its famous historical figures and events. Particular emphasis was placed at the Stations of the Cross at the Grad fortress, and the historical events of 1715 during the miraculous defense of the city against the Ottomans. The three-hour tour of the city ended with a visit to the Kamičak fort, where the group learned all about this symbol of the town of Sinj.

The Sinj Tourist Board thanks everyone who participated and helped to make this project a reality!
