Tilting at the Ring

20.8.2010. - 22.8.2010.Barban

Tilting at the RingIn 1696 trka na prstenac (tilting at the ring) was held for the first time in Barban. When Franjo Loredan organized this competition during the local fair, little did he know that he would be remembered for such an event. After 280 years this competition was revived, so that in 1976 the chivalrous competition was held once again in Barban. Tilting at the ring is organized on the next to last weekend in August. The gallop of horses, traditional folk costumes, clanking of old weapons, rider's entourage are a history collection of memorable images for every visitor.
