Advent on the island of Rab provides a special combination of art and cuisine, along with entertainment for all ages. Numerous concerts with different musical genres, art exhibitions by local and international artists, and various theatre plays bring joy and a good mood to everyone. Finally, a bountiful Christmas table full of local specialities will delight visitors’ palates and sweeten the end of the year.
There are numerous attractions which can be experienced only during Advent on the island of Rab. You can buy local Christmas gifts and dance on ice on the unique skating rink on the island. Have a great ride with your children on the Christmas-New Year’s train. A special event for children is the arrival of Santa Claus, particularly when he descends from the sky by parachute! Another great event is the gathering of dozens of motorcyclists dressed as Santas on Rab waterfront. This is a spectacle not to be missed!
Just a few days before Christmas, the ‘Tuner’ association sets up a live nativity scene with domestic animals and members of the association. The interaction with passers-by getting ready for Christmas celebrations creates a special festive atmosphere.
