"The Alka of Sinj" Sinj by MikeBird

Sinj Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 10 photos

Some local history and colour in August

This annual event is taken very seriously by the local townspeople of Sinj. It is their way of celebrating their famous defeat of the invading Ottomans in 1715 which they claim was due to the prayers and devotion paid to their iconic portrait of the Madonna in the local church.
