Rab is a Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea. It’s known for the old town of the same name, encircled by ancient walls. The town’s four prominent church bell towers include the Romanesque tower at the Cathedral St. Mary and the tower at the ruins of St. John the Evangelist. The monastery at the 16th-century Church of St. Justine is now a museum of sacral objects.
With 30 sandy beaches, Rab is known as the Happy Island with a lot of tiny, picturesque coves, visited by tourists from all over the world for almost 125 years. To this day, due to the crystal clear, warm and shallow sea, it is great for the entire family. Everyone can find their own private beach on Rab based on their preference: there are naturist beaches, solitary coves, beaches for dogs, and beaches for single people looking for a bit of privacy.
Many churches and town squares on the island of Rab have not changed their primary role as the center of cultural living since the Roman days. Every summer you can experience all kinds of happenings on the streets of Rab, from concerts featuring eminent Croatian and international musicians, to open art ateliers and street exhibitions, creating a special vibrant atmosphere.
