3 augustus 2014, Sinjska alka, Sinj

donderdag 24 juli 2014

Sinj Op authentieke locaties, de oude vestingstad Grad, het hulpfort Kamičak, de 'Alkarski dvorovi' (Ridderhof van de Alkaren) en de 'Alkarsko trkalište (Renbaan van de Alkaren), houden de mannen en jongens, de ‘Alkaren’, al sinds 1715 trots hun herinneringen levend aan de overwinning van het volk uit de omgeving van de rivier de Cetina op het Turkse leger. De Sinjska alka, een traditioneel riddertoernooi van de Alkaren van Sinj, zijn spelen waarin, ter ere van de jaarlijkse viering van de overwinning op de Turken, ridders, de nakomelingen van de toenmalige strijders en erfgenamen van hun heldendom, het tegen elkaar opnemen. Het hoogtepunt van het driedaagse evenement is de bekende ridderstrijd om de 'alka' waarin de ridders al galopperend op hun paarden hun lans in het midden van de ring (de alka) proberen te steken. De Sinjska alka is uitgeroepen tot roerend cultureel erfgoed van de hoogste categorie en is in 2010 opgenomen op de UNESCO lijst Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
