Island Rab is one of the sunniest islands in the Adriatic and a true oasis for tourists, travelers and nature lovers. It is adorned with a specially indented coast and clear sea. As it is located in the northern part of the Adriatic, historical events have not passed it by. In its full splendor and originality, traces of the past are preserved here. We find them primarily in the architecture of the old city and in cultural and historical monuments from Roman and Greek times.
Not only ancient monuments but also modern festivals contribute to the rich cultural heritage in order to evoke the historical heritage of Rab. Here you will hear stories from the life of the old people of Rab, legends about their sailors and learn many interesting things. Numerous monuments from the Middle Ages, then Gothic and Renaissance palaces – especially churches and bell towers – are also part of the magic of the island of Rab.
Stunning natural beauties, forests and parks with centuries-old pine trees, holm oaks and agaves will not leave you indifferent. The fertile fields of the island of Rab are rich in natural herbs, vineyards and olive groves. The island’s taverns, full of sea and sailor details, offer olive oil, seafood and fish specialties providing an unforgettable Mediterranean experience.
