1953. - Town’s swimming-pool

The opening of the Town’s olympic-size swimming-pool took place on 26 July 1953. Sinj swimming-pool was among the first in the former Yugoslav state. It was built owing to the efforts of then Sinj Mayor Vice Buljan, who was also the Alka Tournament Master (alkarski vojvoda). In the later period he further filled the post of Minister of Fisheries in the former People’s Republic of Croatia. There are many witty anecdotes associated with his life. The character of Vice Buljan was embodied by the famous Croatian actor Boris Dvornik in the popular TV serial Čovik i po.
