Rab is one of the most westerly of a small chain of islands that hug the Craotian coast. Rab town is a sleepy little town of church spires that run along the top of a penninsular that juts out into a bay. Its medieval streets lead to little cafes where a compulsory chill out will calm even the most overworked nerves. Hope you enjoy the photos, Paul Williams.
Peaceful Rab in Croatia
Rab is an island in Croatia and a town of the same name located just off the northern Croatian coast in the Adriatic Sea.
The island is 22 km long, has an area of 93.6 km2 and 9,480 inhabitants (2001). The highest peak is Kamenjak at 408 meters. The northeastern side of the island is mostly barren, karst, while the southwestern side is covered by one of the last oak forests of the Mediterranean.
Rab is a sleepy island that only wakes up when the tourists arrive in the summer. Rab town is a pretty town that sits high on cliffs overlooking its port below. Its many churches and monasteries can be seen by the many bell towers that give the sky line of Rab a distinctive look.
