Zidine Fortress

Althought there is little left on the antque town of Rab, it is worthwhile to see preserved and prosperous Rab of the early and late Romanesque period which brought with a new kind of urbanism and wonderful arhitecture of town houses, churches, monasteries and belfries influenced by the Mediterranean spirit. It is worthwhile to experiance the adventurous controversial feeling and coldness and warm-heartedness of stone ambience, numerous stone portals and windows, which separate the outer noisy life of its inhabitants from the secretive and hidden one

Very nice and cozy small town with bridge from island Cres to island Losinj. Full of history and nice houses. If you are passing through, stop there and go around. It is worth to grab ice cream and return to history

Old Gateway (Roman Arch)

The Old Gateway or Roman Arch is not a Roman arch as was once presumed, but was in fact the main entrance to the central compound of the Roman Tarsatica in late antiquity, an ancient town on whose ruins medieval Rijeka was built. The instincts of Rijeka’s populace in calling this ancient monument simply the Gateway have been proved right, the epithet Roman Arch being gradually accepted since Classicism, when it started to be documented and researched. This Principia was the main centre, supply base and the starting point of the Alpine enclosure, composed of scores of kilometers of protective walls, turrets, guard-houses and larger fortifications usually on high ground which were able to signal to one another, all built with the aim of blocking barbarian incursions towards Italy, the centre of the Roman Empire.
