Awarded many times as the best tourist destination in the Adriatic, the town of Rab sits on a narrow sliver of land protruding towards the mainland, bounded by ancient city walls and recognisable by four church towers that form the familir outline, depicting Rab as a ship with four masts: bell tower of the church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary – the cathedral, the bell tower of the church of St. John the Evangelist (located near the ruins of the Church), the belfry of the church of St. Andrew the Apostle and the bell tower of the church of St. Justine. Further inland from the old town is a beautiful park called Komrčar, whose numerous paths wind around wooded hills all the way down to the beaches of Rab.
Saint Patron of Rab, St. Cristophor supposedly saved the island from attackers, earning the right to have his skull preserved in a reliquiary within the Rab Cathedral.
If you like, you could visit a large collection of sacral art at the Franciscan Monastery of St. Bernardin with two churches (St. Euphemia and St. Bernardin) where you can find pictures, valuable old books, ecclesiastical art, ethnographic collection, coin collection and a lot of other things.
The hallmark of Olive Gardens of Lun is the fact that the largest number of millennial wild olive trees is found in one location. It’s hard to say which olive tree is the oldest, but we are cooperating with institutions for agricultural research to find out the answer. Briefly, there is over 80 000 trees in the garden. Examination of every tree is a demanding process that can last for over a year. Based on the examinations concluded so far, the oldest olive tree in the garden is over 1600 years old which lines it up among the three oldest olive trees in the world, along with trees from Greece and Israel. Go ahead and try to find it in the park!
Despite being occasionally grazed by local pastoral herds for a long time, the barren island was apparently never permanently inhabited except by detainees during the 20th century. Throughout World War I, Austria-Hungary sent Russian prisoners of war from the Eastern Front to Goli Otok.
In 1949, the entire island was officially turned into a top-secret prison and labor camp run by the authorities of the People’s Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, along with the nearby island of St. Gregory, which maintained a similar prison camp. Until 1956, throughout the Informbiro period, it was used to imprison political prisoners. They included well-known and alleged Stalinists, but also other members of the Communist Party of Yugoslavia or even non-partisan citizens accused of showing sympathy or inclination towards the Soviet Union.
Many anti-communists (Serbian, Croatian, Macedonian, Albanian and other nationalists, etc.) were also imprisoned on Goli Otok. Non-political prisoners were also sent to the island to serve simple sentences, and some of them were sentenced to death. In total, approximately 16,000 political prisoners served there, of whom between 400 and 600 died on the island. Other sources, mostly based on various individual statements, claim that nearly 4,000 prisoners died in the camp.
Sveti Grgur is an uninhabited island in Croatia, on the Adriatic Sea between Rab and Krk. The island was the site of a women’s prison in SFR Yugoslavia, in tandem with the nearby Goli Otok, which served the same purpose for men, from 1948 to 1988.
