Rabac (Italian: Porto Albona) is a Croatian resort town on Kvarner Bay, just southeast of Labin, in Istria.[1]

Long a small fishing port, Rabac has grown in recent years into a resort town with numerous villas and apartment buildings.

The Rabac Festival is an annual electronic music festival that has been held there for many years; 3000 people attended in 2002.

History

Up until the end of the 19th century, Rabac was a small fishing village. British explorer Richard Francis Burton visited the village in 1876 and mentioned it his book The Seaboard of Istria. The first summer mansion was built at that time by the Prohaska family but got later destroyed during World War II. The first hotel in Rabac, named Quarnaro, was opened on 11 June 1889.

Hotels

Three major hotels and a camping site are situated on the first beach. Along the 'Riva' apartments are available for rent. Along the second beach and Girandella countless hotels are situated, of particular note, the locally famous Albona hotel.

Tourist activity

Regular music concerts are held at Rabac beach and in the hotels. Magic shows at night are prevalent as are comedians. Tourist expeditions to Venice, Dubrovnik and Krka are common and operate daily at 1 and 3 pm. Fishing tours are also common and cost about 100 kuna.

Education

Although Rabac is better known as a travel and tourism destination, the Matija Vla?i? Primary School offers four grades of primary education for the local students.[3] For the higher grades and secondary education students have to travel to the nearby city of Labin.[4]
