About Island Rab
Counting as one of the most romantic islands of Adriatic Sea, Rab has been a site of many happy endings once love is concerned. Being often a destination of choice for caring honeymoon goers, its lovely coves and secluded coastal areas are just what you need to spark your love life to new heights.
But Rab’s charm doesn’t end with romantic nature. It has a rather fascinating and long history. The capital town of Rab was founded by Roman Emperor over 2000 years ago, and its residents include St. Marin (founder of San Marino Republic) and influential scientist, Bishop Mark de Dominis. Settlements of Supetarska Draga, Lopar, Banjol and Barbat provide numerous opportunities for prime gastronomic adventures, and added calories can be used for long walks through the impressive Dundo Nature Reserve. In Medieval times, Rab was known for its ferocious crossbowman army, and you can see their descendants parading through island today, carrying authentic gear and weapons. But instead of challenging view, these will welcome you with a warm smile, happy to introduce you to their astonishing cultural heritage.
