It is a place of a traditional annual dive competition, being organised in July. This event gathers young men who would like to show their fitness. The participants make their jumps to the Naretva River. The first formal competition 'Old Bridge Dives – diving competition off the Old Bridge' was in 1968. However, this traditions has longer history because the first recorded mention of diving off the bridge is from 1664.
