Family trip to Rab Island with children. Ideas on where to go with your child

Rab Island is great for a family vacation with children. There are no water parks, amusement parks or a zoo but there are a large number of natural and architectural attractions. Rab will please active kids, and those children who prefer excursions to everything else, and those who like to lie on the beach the most. There are a lot of tourists here during the high season. But the beaches are not crowded. There are no queues to the museums, and if you want some quiet time, you can always take your child for a walk to admire the beautiful views.
The island has many original and attractive hotels. Old Town Rab apartments enjoy continuous popularity among tourists. Apartments are located in various historical buildings of the capital, … Open
On Rab, you can find rocky, sandy, and pebble beaches. Kids especially like the sand, therefore Rajska beach near the Lopar village on the north of the island traditionally attracts a large number of travelers with children. With a small child, you can go to the small-pebbled Pudarica beach not far from Barbat. The water here is clear, the descent to the water is gentle, the depth is small, and there is a lot of shade from the pine forest nearby. If you are not a fan of nudism, then you should take your child to the Kandalora beach near Palit, and to the Stolac, Sahara, and Ciganka beaches near Lopar. Traditionally, those who like to sunbathe bikini-less, prefer these beaches.
Be sure to take your child for a walk through the streets of Rab, the capital of the island. In the Middle Ages, this small town was rebuilt according to the drawings of the famous architect Juraj Dalmatinac, and since then almost nothing has changed here. Here you can see partially preserved fortress walls, the 15th- century houses with immutable geraniums on the windows, the Romanesque bell towers, the 13th- century church of St. Mary. On the central square of the city, there is the Prince's Palace, which construction began in the 12th century and continued until the 15th century. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
One of the most "Croatian" souvenirs can be considered Morcic jewelry. According to the legend, many centuries ago, the image of the Moor in a turban, in the form of which Morcic is made … Open
Near the Prince’s Palace, there is the Galtsigna Palace with the Gothic and Renaissance architectural elements and the Palaces of Dominis and Krnota. Both the old St. Justine’s church and the Franciscan monastery of St. Anthony Abbot will please the child. In this city, you can also find the ruins of a former 10th-century Benedictine monastery and its 12th- century bell tower, which was restored in the 20th century. Rab is perfect to raise in a child an interest towards the history and archeology: the medieval town itself is an excellent illustration of how people lived a century ago.
Rab Lopar is also worth visiting. Here you can acquaint the child with the basics of geography and tell him about the dwarf country of San Marino. That same Marin, who founded this small state, was born in Lopar. Here you should show the child the 15th- century Church of St. Mary. It will be interesting to visit the Supetarska Draga village. It is located in a rather picturesque place and has a bell from 1059, the oldest of the Adriatic bells. However, all the settlements of Rab are distinguished by their beauty and their own unique spirit, so it is worth showing your child all of them.
Located in the Kvarner Gulf, the Croatian island of Rab is considered to be the sunniest place in Europe. It's an ideal resort with fabulous beaches, beautiful nature and unique climatic … Open
There is more to this island than just observing the architectural sights and swimming. There are sports fields, where your kid can play with other children, and kilometers of footpaths, which both a baby and an adult child will manage. You can all enjoy the beautiful local nature, almost untouched by human hands. Your child might like snorkeling or learning diving, you can go fishing with your child, and compete in who will catch more fish. You can also rent a boat and arrange a real voyage along the coast, visiting secluded bays, or go on a trip to the neighboring islands or to the coast. In a word, there is no time to be bored on Rab with a child.
