Expert riders compete to capture a symbolic shield. This event takes place in Sinj on the first Sunday in August.The second major event centers around the Franciscan Church of Our Lady of Sinj (Crkva Gospa Sinjska) which is a pilgrimage site related to a painting of the Virgin which was brought to the church in the 1400s.
Klis is a small village on the outskirts of Split. There is little here to draw visitors apart from the ruins of a medieval fortress, known as the fort of Klis.
