As part of the permanent tourist promotion between the Croatian Tourist Board and Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board, and in cooperation with the Sinj Tourist Board, twelve prominent international journalists visited Sinj on May 12. 

Henri Yadan, Elisabeth Camus, and Bertrand Rocher accompanied by Lena Bigonwille came from France, with representatives of the CNTB office in France, then Natalia Kondratiuk - Swierbuska, Grzegorz Rybka, Marek Dlugopolski, Anders Olof Mathlein, Sandra Ilse Pixie, Anna Catarina Offe from Poland, Ana Maria von Gegerfeldt from Sweden, and Zuzana Kostkova from the Czech Republic. The group first visited Split, Solin, Trogir, Kaštela, and Klis, followed by a tour of Sinj, Trilj, and Gata.

The study trip is dedicated to the gastro-oenological offer of Split-Dalmatia County, but also to cultural and natural sights.

The renowned international journalists were accompanied by tour guide Dino Ivančić in Sinj. The tour began in front of the Alkar Palace, where they were welcomed by the director of the Sinj Tourist Board, Monika Vrgoč.


Here, they became acquainted with the rich past of the city of Sinj, especially the Shrine of the Miraculous Lady of Sinj and the Alka Knights. They then visited the Sinjska Alka Museum accompanied by curator Tomislav Barhanović. The journalists were delighted with the modern line-up and the knowledge of Sinj's turbulent past.


As the whole program is largely dedicated to gastronomy and oenology, they had the opportunity to get acquainted with the local offer of wines produced by OPG Mažurin and excellent gastronomy (restaurant Ispod ure and Association Stari zanati), such as Sinj uštipak, young cheese, Dalmatian prosciutto, Alkar salami, Dalmatian pancetta, and more. After the gastronomy presentation, the tour continued to OPG Moro (Gala - Municipality of Otok), where valuable members of OPG Moro, in addition to various vegetable crops, grow and prepare products from industrial hemp. The journalists were delighted and surprised by the offer of the city of Sinj, showing great interest in continuing cooperation through selective programs for cultural tourism and traditional eno-gastronomic offer.


The Sinj Tourist Board would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their successful cooperation!
