After a full on initiation to Croatia through the Zagreb and Lika-Senj counties, followed by a taste of the coastal Dalmatian delights in Makarska, Brela, Baška Voda, Živogošće and Drvenik, the group of five international journalists, bloggers and travelers who are being led on a 23 day journey around Croatia by American Television host Ashley Colburn for a web tv series titled Discover Croatia, have now sampled what Dalmatia’s hinterland has to offer.
This week the crew have visited the beautiful town of Sinj tucked away in Dalmatia’s unsung hinterland, where they have indulged themselves in traditional cuisine and been introduced to the centuries old Sinj Alka Knights Games, an event which various horsemen attempt to aim their lances at a hanging metal ring, known as the Alka, at full gallop. From the hinterland the TV series now moves to Split, where the foreign bloggers will have a chance to test out their skills in the very ‘Split’ ball-game of picigin in the water at Bačvice beach.
Discover Croatia, which is a Dhar media and Touristar TV project, is a tourism TV series which will be shown on Tourist TV. The five foreign journalists and bloggers (South African-Finn Violette Tettor, American couple Florence and Mike Lince, Brazilian Mauricio Caparica and Ana Carrasco from Spain) are on an exciting adventure around Croatia where they will be writing their travel blogs. Filming lasts 23 days and will end on 27 September in the Dubrovnik-Neretva county.
