The Sinjska Alka is a famous equestrian competition held in Sinj every first Sunday in the month of August. Since 1715, it has been held to commemorate the victory over the Ottoman Turks. The horseman must aim their lances at a hanging metal ring, called an <em>alka</em>, at full gallop. Interestingly, only men who were born in the Sinjska Krajina, the city of Sinj or one of the surrounding villages, can take part in the Alka competition. Proudly, in 2010, it was written in UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list.
