Rab is the oldest settlement on the island of the same name. People began to explore these lands in the 4th century BC. It is not the largest settlement of the island; only from 500 to 1000 people live here permanently. Croats prefer to live in neighboring villages, visited by less tourists. Crowds of tourists stroll along the seaside promenade during the summer, and empty tables are rarely seen at local cafes.
From the 3rd century BC to the 6th century AD, the town belonged to the Roman Empire, but unfortunately, almost no buildings have preserved since then. The founder of San Marino, Saint Martin, was born in Rab; later he fled from his native Rab due to the persecution of Christians.
There is an old town surrounded by walls. Their construction dates back to the beginning of the 12th century. In the historical part of Rab, you can find churches of different eras, 11th, 12th and 16th centuries, as well as medieval palaces.
The coastal part of the town includes two spits. The camera is installed on a narrow spit near the bay, where the port is located. In addition to countless cafes, restaurants, and hotels located next to the webcam, there are monasteries, a museum, and casinos nearby.
