The Turks entered Blato and enslaved women and children. The men of Blato formed Kumpanija, a national army; they defeated the Turks on Giča and set their people free. It is this army’s tradition that developed a knight’s dance called Kumpanjija, which is preserved today by the Knight’s Association Kumpanjija.

In cooperation with:

– Blato Tourist Board

– Knight’s Association Kumpanija and Emilio Šeparović, a film director
