Drniš is a small town with great folk and musical tradition, cherished by many cultural associations and bands that keep the original musical expression, performing traditional dances and in traditional costumes.
Among them are the Wind orchestra Drniš , Tambura orchestra Krsto Odak , Klapa Drniš, and Town choir "Neuma".

The tradition is woven into male and female folk costumes, and its elements were a means of communication full of symbolic meaning, in the old days. Traditional clothes for women consist of: scarf, white shirt with decoration, dress, apron, belt, bag, mantle without sleeves, socks that reach knees, decorated around ankles and traditional leather shoes. Traditional clothes for men consist of traditional Drniš hat, shirt, waistcoat decorated with filigree buttons, jacket with sleeves, belt, trousers, socks that reach knees or ankles, traditional leather shoes and long mantle with a hood.


Bunja is a stone-built shelter for occasional use by farmers and sheepherders who hide in them during bad weather. Bunja is usually circular in shape with a dome, and experts agree that most of them were built in the 19th century and in the first half of the 20th century. It is common that the shelters do not have doors and windows, and the interior is made of a small room in whose center is an open fireplace. They are small, construction technique is very simple, and the material is completely natural. In addition to shelters, let’s mention the symbols of architecture of Dalmatia, the so-called „suhozidi“- dry stone walls, which are common in the Drniš area.
