On entery into the old city of Rab you'll be met by the 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 that are in large part still standing. The old city is dominated by four bell towers mainly in the Romanesque style. RAB
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.
If you love old cities in which every building brings to mind dozens of generations, you will feel really good in Rab. Above many of the Renaissance and Gothic portals you can still see the crests of the aristocratic families of Rab, the descendants of whom are your kindly hosts of today.
Right next to the city walls is the lovely Komrcar park, and below it a long path and bathing place. You can spend your holiday in the shade of ancient pines, to the smell of resin and the blue of the sea, without ever having to do without the conveniences the city has to offer
