    Sabunike is small tourist locality situated in between the city of Nin and the island of Vir. Its name is obviously derivated from Latin, sabbia which means sand. There is long sandy beach in shallow coves which makes it ideal place for a family vacations. Nearby the beach there is famous Nin medical mud, used since the time of the Roman Empire, which helps in rheumatic disorders and chronic dermatological problems.

    According to the existing legend, seven Croatian kings were crowned in the town of Nin. After the coronation ceremony each king would go on horseback to the small church of St. Nicholaus and present himself to the people vowing to defend the homeland of Croatia.
    The church is located on a small hill, in the field called Prahulje, just a few kilometres out of Nin. St. Nicholaus is the only preserved example of the Romanesque architecture with the central groundplan and the cross-ribbed vault. It dates from the end of the 11th and the beginning of the 12th century.
