RAB FJERA – Holy day of St. Anne
- 09:00 pm - Mediaeval Crafts and Workshops Fair – Sloboda Square and Kaldanac
The Prince of Rab declares that on the second day of the Rabska Fjera, on the feast day of St. Anne, there will be an exhibition of medieval crafts in the old part of the town from 09:00pm to 01:00am. A distinctive feature of this evening is the presentation of the old way of fishing on the island in the cove beneath the town walls. The cove is silent, everything is calm and one can only hear the gentle sound of oars as the boats get ready for fishing. The diligent hands of the fishermen take the fish out of the nets and prepare them in the traditional way on the grill. The town exudes an ancient atmosphere. The air if filled with the scent of freshly caught fish, immortelle, lavender, šuljčići toasted bread, and fritule fritters from workshops all over the town. While you sample these traditional specialities, you can watch the artisans as they forge items, make clay and stone vessels or write in Glagolitic letters, all accompanied by music played on medieval instruments.
