PRIVLAKA

Sabunjari

As well as its hardworking fishermen and peasants, Privlaka is known for its sabunjari – men who until just recently were known for excavating the sea sand in this region and for carrying it on their shoulders to the wooden ships (typical wooden ships called leut, trabakul and bracera). It is thanks to them that Zadar was rebuilt after being destroyed in the World War II. Celebrating the victory over all of life’s misfortunes and as a sign of pride and glory, today’s football team is called Sabunjar.
