Rab

Rab Island is located in the Adriatic Sea just off the northern Croatian coast. The island of Rab was first specified in a Greek source Periplus of Pseudo-Scylax at around 360 B.C. and afterward by another Greek and Roman geologist by the name Arba. That name was synonymous with the Liburnians, so far the most established tenants of the island. The island of Rab is rich in social legacy and well preserved historical landmarks that make it a well-known get-away goal. Rab sits amidst the Gulf of Kvarner, joined by many other Croatian islands and is separated from the mainland by the Velebit channel.
