Sinj is in Croatia and beyond detectable by Alka, knight’s game in Sinjwhich is held since the beginning of the 18th century, as a sign of victory over the Turkish invaders. Alka happens every year in the first week of August in Sinj. Horseman alkar must on a horse at full gallop with a spear hit the center of a small iron ring called alka, which is located at a height of 3.2 m above the ground. Church of Our Miraculous Lady is the famous Marian shrine in Sinj. It was built in 1699 and 1712 and has preserved its original appearance. The church has an image of Our Lady, painted in the 15th or 16th century, which the people of Sinj crowned in gratitude for the victory over the Turks in 1715.
