Klapa Sveti Juraj – Croatian Navy was founded in early 2001 aiming to promote the Armed forces of the Republic of Croatia at the international meeting of the world’s armies in Lourdes, and it is a part of the Croatian Army Orchestra. (Klapa is a name for the form of traditional Croatian a cappella singing.)

Klapa Sveti Juraj has performed at numerous concerts, protocol activities of the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Croatia, events concerning Croatian state institutions, culture, the Catholic church and associations of Croatian defenders.

The Klapa has received many awards and recognitions by state and church institutions and associations deriving from the Homeland war.

Out of many performances outside the homeland (Italy, Germany, Poland, Belgium, Hungary, France, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Montenegro) some can be singled out: the performance at NATO base at Mons (Belgium), in the centre of the Command for Europe and the performace at the 11th European festival of male chamber choirs that was held in Pécs, Hungary (2006).

In cooperation with the Croatian Emigration Institute, klapa Sveti Juraj - Croatian Navy was the host of the First Meeting of the Klapas of Croatian Emigration in Homeland that was held at Kaštel Stari on 1 July 2006 attended by klapas from Croatian communities from all over the world.
