Kupa nights (Kupske noći) are three day tourist/sport event that is held in the centre of the Town of Sisak on Slave Striegel promenade that runs along the banks of Kupa river, from 02. to 04.

During the three days event the visitors and participants will be able to participate in Kupska alka, a unique sport event only held on Kupa River. The teams of two ride a traditional boat full speed while aiming their lances at a hanging metal ring (alka). The event guarantees a lots of fun and exciting finale.

The boats and wooden oars are provided by the organizer so all you need is a good will and a bit of stamina to race and try to win prizes.
