Baljci is a small village in the Dalmatian hinterland, southeast of Knin in the Šibenik-Knin County. Baljci lies underneath the Svilaja mountain and near the source of the river Čikola. The population of the municipality was 470 in 1991, with 96.38% declaring themselves Serbs. But since Operation Storm the village of Baljci is uninhabited, with its former residents and their descendants scattered all over the world, with significant concentrations in Sid (Serbia), Oxford (United Kingdom), Hagen (Germany), as well as some in the USA and Australia.
Before war broke out, Baljci was a typical village with almost all the residents identifying themselves as Serbs, and as such every summer on the 7th of July the village Slava took place. As according to the Orthodox calendar the 7th of July is Ivanjdan, the day on which Orthodox Serbs celebrate the birth of John the Baptist.
