October 9, 2020 - Yesterday, October 8, the Sinj Tourist Board welcomed members of the French television crew "Adrenaline" to film an episode about the UNESCO heritage for the series "The wonders of UNESCO" on the French TV channel Voyage.

Their arrival in this part of Inland Dalmatia was to visit the Sinjska Alka Museum and the UNESCO intangible heritage of the city of Sinj, especially the Alka Knight's Game, which has been on this list since 2010.

The episode about the Sinjska Alka Museum and the Alka began at the Sinj Hippodrome, where the preparations of the Alka were filmed, as well as the participants of the equestrian clubs. This was made possible by members of the Alka Knights Society Frano Ivković and Stipe Šimundža, and from KGK Alkar, Mirko Penić.

A part dedicated to the historical concept of the Alka, its survival through the centuries, determinants that make it special, and the reasons for its inclusion on the UNESCO list of intangible heritage was filmed in Alkarski dvori and Kamičak Fortress. The necessary information was given to them by the curator of the Sinjska Alka Museum Tomislav Barhanović, Alkar Petar Tomašević and Alkar guy Lovrin Tomašević.
