The tight connection between Sinj and the Cetina region with these noble and unique animals is most noticeable in the Sinj Alka itself, though this connection is much deeper and lasts throughout the year. Namely, the horses are carefully supervised by experts to ensure the best and highest quality of care. As the organizers point out, the horse's health is more important than its breed, breeders, owners and riders, organizers, sponsors, and club representatives.

The special healing power of the horse has proved to be an extremely positive effect on therapeutic riding for people with disabilities.

The Sinj Tourist Board invites you to witness this exciting sporting event in Sinj and to support the Sinj competitors from the Alkar club.

BK Vlaji Organizes a Bike Tour to the Cetina Source!

May 28, 2019 - The beginning of June in Sinj abounds in sporting events! Just one day after the 9th Cetina Adventure Race and the City Challenge, the Bike Club Vlaji organizes the 7th bicycle to the Cetina source. One of the most attractive and challenging bicycle tours is 82 km long and the total climb is 800 meters.

Due to its length, the route requires you to be in top form, but each pedal is richly rewarded: very few places are this rich in nature and beauty. The bike tour starts from Sinj through Hrvace, Panj, Bitelić and further on the left bank of Peruća and Cetina, all the way to the very source, which is near the old 9th-century Croatian Church of the Holy Salvation, one of our most precious and beautiful archaeological sites.

6.Biciklijada do izvora - 10.6. M (27).JPG

The Cetina is 110 kilometers long but does not run from 11 of the nearby sources (Glavaš, Jarebica, Kotluša, Vraniš, Baraš and others), of which only some provide water throughout the year. The largest, strongest and most beautiful source is Glavaš, about 130 meters deep. The second strongest source is Jarebica (Vukovića vrelo).

Cetina is also responsible for the beauty of Peruća lake which, although artificially created in 1958 by the construction of the HE Peruća, will grab your attention with its beauty and wealth of flora and fauna. It is most popular among rowers and fishermen, and in the summer for swimmers.

6.Biciklijada do izvora - 10.6. M (216).JPG

The cyclists will also cross several bridges on the Cetina, most notably the one in Panj, built in 1905 and the Balečki bridge, built in 1907. The construction of the Balečki bridge was initiated by the Austrian government and was built by local craftsmen with dark gray stone. It has three openings of a semicircular shape of the same size lying on the stone pylons of the rectangular section. The entire area around the bridge, including the riverbed, is a valuable archeological site with prehistoric and antique finds. The bridge was rebuilt in 2014.

While driving on the state road, a police escort, as well as an accompanying safety vehicle, is secured if someone is prevented from continuing. The tour is of no competitive character, all adult cyclists can participate, and a bicycle helmet is recommended for participants. For all cyclists, lunch is provided at the source, as well as water and fruit on the route itself.

6.Biciklijada do izvora - 10.6. M (111).JPG

This year, apart from the cyclists from Sinj and its surroundings, numerous guests from Split, Livno, Bihać and other cities will join, together with the beauty of the trail and nature, an unforgettable adventure is guaranteed.

Certainly the most beautiful way possible to spend a Sunday. Do not forget, June 9, 2019, at 10 am in front of Hotel Alkar!

Acclaimed Polish Radio Journalist Ernest Zozuń Visits Sinj!

May 11, 2019 - Last year's winner of the Croatian National Tourist Board's prestigious award - the Golden Pen, Ernest Zozuń, recorded a radio show about the Sinjska Alka Museum and the City of Sinj.

As part of the permanent tourist promotion of the Croatian Tourist Board and the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board, in cooperation with the local tourist boards of the cities and municipalities of Split, Klis, Trogir, Sinj and Omiš, Polish radio journalist Ernest Zozuń recorded several interesting radio shows to get closer to the cultural and gastronomic work of Split-Dalmatia County.


Ernest Zozuń is a renowned radio reporter for the Polish Radia 3 and is one of its international correspondents, who at one time reported as a war correspondent from the areas of Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Chechnya, Afghanistan and Iraq.

He is also the author of many educational shows and programs for children, is an award-winning Polish and international reporter, and is the publisher of Polish radio programs and 'Welcome to the Troika' and Radioactive reporters.

Zozuń has received numerous awards and recognition. In 2003, he was nominated for the Transparency International Award, and from 2003 to 2005 he was the correspondent of the Polish Radio of Iraq (IAR), where, apart from daily information and interviews, he provided a column and regular reports on the Polish military contingent in Iraq. In 2004, he received a silver medal for "National Defense Merits" and the 2012 Gold Medal for "Merit for National Defense".


In 2006/2007, he was the correspondent of Polish radio in Moscow (IAR). Since 2008, he has been one of the co-authors of 'Welcome to the Troika' and the international author of the program "3 sides of the world".

Zozuń won the Grand Prix at the international radio competition Prix Bohemia in 1995 (for a War Crime Report in Chechnya) and the main prize in the radio category at the Media Festival in 1996. In addition, in 2002 he received the Grand Press Award (Radio Reporter).

He won the HTZ Golden Pen award in 2018 for his dedication of Varaždin to "Zapraszamy do Trójki", which was created based on a study trip to Croatia. The intention was to show the diversity of Croatia outside the main season.

In Sinj, Ernest Zozuń was accompanied by tourist guide Dina Ivančić and Monika Vrgoč, director of the Tourist Board of Sinj, who introduced him to the geographical, historical and cultural features of the town, the shrine of the Miraculous Lady of Sinj, the Alka and the significance of the town of Sinj on a local and national level. They toured the Sinjska Alka Museum accompanied by Boris Filipović Grčič. He made an interesting interpretation of the significance of the museum and its exhibits and gave an interview for the Polish radio program III, for the Zapraszamy do Trójki (Troika) emission.

Culture and Cuisine of Sinj Region Delights Prominent International Journalists

May 2, 2019 - On May 1, the Croatian Tourist Board and the Tourist Board of Split-Dalmatia County, in cooperation with the local tourist communities, welcomed ten prominent international journalists in Inland Dalmatia as part of the ongoing tourist promotion of the area. This time, the journalists explored the Sinj region. 

On the initiative of Joško Stella, director of the Tourist Board of Split-Dalmatia County, as part of organized study trips, journalists arrived from all countries the Croatian National Tourist Board (HTZ) has a representative office. In cooperation with local tourist boards, around 40 foreign-based journalists will visit the cities of Split, Hvar, Brač, Vis, Solin, Klis, Trogir, Trilj, Sinj and Omiš in three very attractive tourist programs. They will inform tourists about selective forms of tourism, that is, natural, cultural and gastronomic forms, as well as the opportunities for active holidays in this area.


The four-day program "Culture and Gastronomy" - announced as "the most delicious program" - presents the gastronomic and cultural offer of the cities involved in the tour.

Reputable journalists from Austria, Italy, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland, the Netherlands and Norway - Jerzy Niemocinski, Anna Sienkiewicz, Ewa Wagner, Adolf Wurzer, Marta Budska, Obert Oppelt, Maurizio Ceccaioni, Giuseppe Danielli, Giorgia Lola Oost, Ann-Mari Helena Gregersen and Elin Kristin Kristoffersen - arrived in the Sinj region on the third day of their stay in Split-Dalmatia County.


Accompanied by tour guide Dina Ivančić and director of the Tourist Board of Sinj, Monika Vrgoč, the group was first introduced to the geographical position of Sinj, the rich and intriguing history of the city, the shrine of the Miraculous Lady of Sinj, the Alka and the significance of the City of Sinj for the whole Cetina region. The group then visited the Sinj Alka Museum, accompanied by the curator Tomislav Barhanović. With an interesting interpretation, Barhanović brought the group closer to the significance of the museum and its exhibits. Namely, the modern concept of the museum, the fact that it was nominated for the European Museum in 2017 and won the prestigious Europa Nostra Award in 2018, its many interactive features, and valuable and unique museum exhibitions, which delighted the journalists. 


After the Alka Museum, the group toured the OPG Moro in Gala. They were welcomed by the friendly leaders of the OPG, Jelena and Ivana Moro. Their ecological family farm was founded in 2003 to grow domestic fruit and vegetables, and breed animals in a controlled environment where they eat healthier and thus live healthier lives. In the heart of the Dalmatian hinterland, in the oasis of the fertile and vast Sinj field, through which the clear and crisp Cetina river flows, all the preconditions are available to the Moro family. The OPG is held by three generations, sharing traditions, knowledge, and skills, all with continuous physical work. Since 2013, OPG Moro deals with sowing as well as seed processing and industrial hemp. Their seeds are ecologically certified, sown in fertile soil without the use of pesticides, herbicides, and artificial fertilizers, to be compatible with organic production, and therefore with nature. Currently, they have six products from hemp: tea, oil, protein, flour, face and body cream as well as lipstick.


Otherwise, OPG Moro realized support from rural development measures for operation type 6.1.1. and 6.2.1., and will develop their idea of a farm for the ecological breeding of chickens. The plan is to use waste that has been processed in hemp as a perfect supplement to poultry feed. It already contains 25 percent of protein, meaning at least 80 percent of the animal’s diet will come from their own production. The kind hosts made sure that all journalists tasted their produce, and creams and lip balms were given as gifts. The journalists were delighted with the quality of the product, especially the hospitality of all Moro family members.


Enjoying the beautiful nature on the way from Gala, through Obrovac Sinj, Han, and Bajagić to Hrvace, the journalists also had the opportunity to see the source of Kosinac, the Han bridge built in 1849, Rumin and the bridge on Panj constructed in 1852. As the whole program is largely dedicated to gastronomy, the journalists enjoyed a traditional gastronomic offer at the Panj Farmhouse and enjoyed the most famous dishes of the region such as uštipak, Sinj arambaša, peka of roast veal, and fritule.


The journalists were pleasantly surprised by the potential of the Sinj region. The group continued their journey exploring Omiš.

Descending, the trail leads to a wide macadam path and ascends to the lungs of the town of Sinj, Pavića Nebesa. It passes along the entire length of Pavića Nebesa through the beautiful pine and oak forests and continues to the northern side of Pavića Nebesa on a wide macadam path towards the finish. The track is circular, not technically demanding and is entirely marked by signs, mountaineering markings, and strips. 


Category Čoja: With a length of 22 kilometers (1000 meters uphill) the Čoja begins the same way as the Bara trail, up to the crossing at Lučane, whereupon it continues on asphalt road one kilometer to the entrance to the protected landscape of Sutina and climbs to the highest peak, Visošnica (907 m ). Up to the top, the trail is marked. From the top of Visošnica, on a broad macadam route, it descends to the Sutina Canyon, through Perjanica and one of the most beautiful parts of the Sinj region, passing the mountain stream Sutina almost from the spring to the return to Pavića Nebesa and the finish. The track is circular, marked with mountaineering markings, strips, and signposts for the direction of movement. It is intended for experienced competitors and recreationalists.


Category Alka: With a length of 33 kilometers and an ascent of 1700 meters, the Alka starts just like the first two categories, and halfway at Pavića Nebesa, it separates on a wide macadam path and climbs to the most beautiful view of the town of Sinj on top of Visoka (896 m). It continues on a demanding hiking trail to the top of Visošnica, from where it descends into the Sutina Canyon. The Sutina Canyon is on the left side and from the canyon, it climbs to its northern peak Bukovac, from which it looks towards Visoka, the Kamešnica, the Dinara and Svilaja. From the peak of Bukovac it goes all the way along the direction of Svilaja to the Kačar area. It is again connected to the technically demanding downhill of Plišivica from where it flows into Lučane and moves towards the finish on a wide macadam path.

Day 34 moved from Sinj to the Dinara mountain.

59 kilometres for the day: 15 km bike ride from Sinj to Peručko Lake, followed by a 17 km kayak ride at Peručko Lake, 21 km bike ride from Peručko Lake to Glavaš, and 6 km on foot from Glavaš to Dinara to begin forming the ‘O’ in ‘Welcome’.


Day 34 began with Lacko pedaling from Sinj towards Peručko lake.


At Peručko lake, Lacko swapped his bike for a bright yellow kayak.

They came across rams. 


And a shepherdess named Boja.


They made it to the Cetina. 


And the Church of St. Spas.

To the top of Dinara!


Though the bura began to blow. 


And coordinator Čedo waited for the crew near the shelter. 

A key part of the project was promoting tourism, and the official website has details of the key places visited during the day. Lacko and his crew, however, did not pass any significant landmarks on Day 34. 

You can see the entire project on the Welcome website, as well as much more of Luka Tambaca's stunning photography on the Welcome Facebook page

Tune in tomorrow for Day 35, as Lacko moves from Dinara to the Roški waterfall.
