Old town of Rab

Rab is a town with port on the western coast of the island bearing the same name. It is situated on an elongated peninsula between the Cove of St.Fumia and the port of Rab, where a compact Mediterranean settlement was built. The climate is extremely favourable; the average annual air temperature in January is 6,7 °C (44 °F), and in July 23,2 °C (73,8 °F); the average relative air humidity is 68%. Chief occupation is tourism, yachting tourism in particular. The tourist complex Padova III with a campsite is located on the eastern coast of the town port. Rab is situated on the main road (105) connecting Rab with the ferry ports in Lopar and Misnjak.

The new part of the town developed opposite the port. The town port lies in a protected bay; the outer and inner ports are divided by a breakwater. The depth in the central part of the inner harbour attains between 3 and 5 m; 6-8 m along the eastern embankment of the peninsula, where a 70-m long pier for larger vessels was constructed. The port for smaller vessels has a depth of 4 m. The islet of Tunera, connected by a bank with the coast, protects the outer port from the influence of the open sea. The port is protected by a breakwater to the south-west, along which, on the inner side, larger vessels of the coastal shipping dock. The marina is in the north-eastern part of the town port. Rab ACI Marina has 150 berths in the sea for yachts drawing up to 6 m and up to 18 m in length. The coast can accommodate only yachts in the need of repair.

Middle Street offers a special tourist and cultural atmosphere with its street painters in summer, when the whole centre of the town turns into a huge gallery, and the Rab Cultural Events in the "Knezev dvor" Gallery represent another important event. The Rab Musical Evenings, organized in the church of the Holy Cross (June to August), offer concerts performed by Croatian and international musicians. The most attractive summer event in Rab is the Rab Tournament (reintroduced in 1995), which used to take place as early as 1364, commemorating the defence of the town by the knights in the past. A special attraction of this picturesque mediaeval ceremony is the ancient crossbow, which is used at the tournaments only by the arbalists from San Marino. The tournament takes place twice a year (9th of May and 27th of July).

On the entry into the old city of Rab there is a white stone of the sunlit Square of St.Christopher. There is a fountain in the square embellished with two sculptures of Kalifront and the shepherdess Draga, figures from a legend of chastity and unhappy love. The city is a typically medieval urban centre surrounded by walls, which mostly are still standing. The old city is dominated by four bell towers mainly in the Romanesque style. Earlier, Rab was a Roman settlement, which was given the status of city by Octavius Augustus, who proclaimed it a municipium in the year 10 B.C. Above many of the Renaissance and Gothic portals there are the crests of the aristocratic families of Rab, the descendants of your kindly hosts of today. Right next to the city walls is the lovely Komrcar Park, and below there is a long path and bathing place. Here the nature offers shade of ancient pines, the smell of resin and the blue of the sea, without ever having to do without the conveniences the city has to offer. Although it is limited in space, certainly, the city affords visitors 380 beds in high category rooms, and in 90 suites and flats.
