THE OLD TOWN
There are not many Croatian towns that boast such beauty. Located on a peninsula, over the centuries, Rab has withstood the ravages of time. It is watched over by a quartet of belfries which are the town's centuriesold recognisable symbol. The old part of the town is distinguished by its three parallel streets: Lower, Middle and Upper Street, connected to each other by twelve side alleys. Rab waterfront with its two beautiful squares and numerous terraces and fine areas to rest in is the town's main meeting point and its connection with the world. The coastal promenade leads past the town beach to the Bay of St. Euphemia. There are so many attractions, and all of them within easy reach, just a few steps away! Rab has always offered its visitors much more than emerald sea, fish, seafood, good wine, and hospitality. Rab has always been an island of culture from antiquity to the present day, a place of magnificent natural landscapes and enchanting promenades. The Romans called it Felix Arba (Happy Rab) and for good reason.
The old town of Rab boasts three beautiful parks: Komrčar (the largest), Boškopini and St. Marinus. They are wonderful green areas, and the spirit and lungs of the old town. Their abundant greenery and colourful flowers invite us to take a rest and enjoy the relaxing ambience for a while. Rab's parks are also notable for the stories and legends they tell. Komrčar Park features a bust of the forester Pravdoje Belija, who forested this area in 1883, and in the central part of Boškopini Park there is a hundred-year-old fountain that symbolises all the places and sources of life on the island. The Park of St. Marinus is dominated by the statue of Saint Marinus, founder of the Republic of San Marino. The fountain on St. Christopher’s Square, connected to the legend of the shepherdess Draga and shepherd Kalifront, is the central meeting place in the town, a place where people meet, take a break, or enjoy the various spring and autumn events. The most distinguished inhabitant of Rab was undoubtedly Marco Antonio de Dominis. He was a bishop archbishop, theologian and physicist of world renown. UNESCO declared 2010 the year of Marco Antonius de Dominis. Ivan Krstitelj Rabljanin (John the Baptist of Rab) was a famous caster of church bells and cannons.
Croatia's nautical tourism is constantly developing, and the number of vessels that sail across the Adriatic in summer is increasing. In recent years, the Adriatic and consequently Rab have been visited by yachts owned by some of the world's richest people, which is a reminder of the times when Rab was a destination of the British royal family. Rab has always been particularly interesting to boat owners. Coves suitable for day anchoring and recreation, the numerous small islands around Rab, and the favourable winds for sailors are some of the island's distinctive features and the reason why so many boat owners enjoy sailing around the Rab archipelago. The island's two marinas provide all the necessary infrastructure and comfort.
A WALK TROUGH THE TOWN
During your stay on the island of Rab, do not miss the chance to visit some of the cultural and historical monuments in the old town. A tour of these sites, with or without a local guide, always leaves visitors breathless. To make your sightseeing a truly memorable experience, do not forget to visit the oldest church in Supetarska Draga, the ethnographic museum, the library and monastery of St. Euphemia in Kampor. The educational Ante Premužić hiking trail, which leads across some geologically interesting parts of the island, is also worth visiting. In short, the island and town of Rab are destinations that will fully meet the expectations of a modern tourist. During her stay on Rab, the former BBC royal correspondent Jennie Bond wrote that Rab is an amazing combination of Hawaii and Switzerland.
