Sinj – Tri stoletja viteštva

Sinj – Tri stoletja viteštva
Malo katero mestece na svetu se lahko pohvali s tradicijo kakršno že tri stoletja neguje in ohranja dalmatinsko mestece Sinj, ki se nahaja približno 40 kilometrov severno od Splita. Gre za viteško tekmovanje, to je Sinjsko alko, edinstveno v Evropi in svetu, s katero Sinjani že od leta 1715 ohranjajo spomin na zmago ljudstva Cetinske krajine nad turškimi osvajalci. Sinjani so v čast temu junaškemu dogodku, ko je 700-tim vojakom po petnajstdnevnemu obleganju uspelo odbiti udor turške vojske, ki je štela 60.000 vojakov, ustvarili igro kjer so vsako leto na obletnico zmage tekmovali vitezi, ki so se v bitki borili tudi sami. Kasneje so v alki sodelovali njihovi potomci in nasledniki, svečanost pa se je ohranila vse do danes. Na avtentičnih lokacijah alkarji in alkarski fantje ponosno ohranjajo tradicijo, ki predstavlja simbol junaštva in željo po svobodi. Vrhunec tridnevne prireditve je tekmovanje za alko. Alkarji namreč ne obračunavajo med seboj temveč jezdeč na konju v polnem galopu s pomočjo tri metre dolgim kopjem skušajo zadeti alko, ki visi na vrvi preko tekmovalne steze. Alka je železni obroč, ki je sestavljen iz dveh koncentričnih krogov spojenih s tremi železnimi prečkami, ki medprostor delijo na tri enake dele.

Zmagovalca Alke se bogato nagradi, Sinjani in ljudstvo Cetinske krajine pa ga slavijo kot svojega najbolj odločnega junaka in viteza vse do naslednje Alke.
Letošnja 296. Sinjska alka bo potekala 7. avgusta.
