Podstrana municipality builds its brand on an image of ,,praska'' (peach, fruit) for the last few years. In its agricultural history, a peach brought up a number of families and made possible for us to stand out. Therefore, it is logical that one klapa in Podstrana carries such a simple, yet strong name which always evokes the place from which klapa and its members come from.
Klapa Praska was founded in November 2008, under the artistic leadership of Blaženko Juračić. From the beginning, klapa Praska is actively involved in spiritual, cultural, and entertaining events in cities and municipalities around Croatia. Except Croatia, klapa held concerts in many European countries.
Outstanding awards: Klape Gospi Sinjskoj, 2011, first place by the expert jury for Ave Maria composition; Kaštelanski đir 2013, third place by the expert jury for a cover song and a first place for Bam bam ba bal u bam arrangement by Blaženko Juračić.
