On my first night, after gazing dreamily seawards over an ice-cold beer in the main square's buzzy San Antonio bar, I wandered at random up an alleyway and found myself in rustic Konoba Rab.Obviously a locals' haunt, it had an open oven for cooking Rab's speciality dish of pod peku: lamb or chicken, stewed slowly in a metal pot covered with embers.
We also provide our guests with important tourist information on the historical and cultural monuments, natural sights, and other important places for your good and comfortable stay.The most famous national parks are in and near this region: The Plitvice lakes, Kornati Islands, Krka Waterfalls, Paklenica and North Velebit which is under UNESCO protection.There are also parks of nature Lake Vrana and Telaščica in the western part of the island of Dugi otok.But, some 90 years later, that doesn't explain why such a magical place – popular now with German and Italian visitors – is still largely undiscovered by British tourists.Sitting by the waterfront of Rab Town at dusk on my first evening, watching boats rocking gently as wisps of concert music drifted across the pocket-handkerchief harbour, I couldn't believe how exquisite it was.
Chatting at the tourist office with personable Luka Perini, I discovered that Rab becomes party central every July, when it hosts its annual Medieval Festival (or Rabska Fjera). "I've no towel with me," I lied, blushing furiously – and scuttled off down to the town beach to eat my Rab cake. Getting there The nearest airport to Rab is Rijeka.
