Upper Adriatic water-colours (...continued)
It is one of the most densely wooded islands, has three hundred springs, and is a veritable botanical exhibition, with plants not native to the island. The Komrcar park, with its laurel, poplar, cypress, Indian fig-tree, rosemary, pine and hundred-year-old agave is now the pride of Rab.
Many myths and stories surround its history. One of them is written in the sculptures near the fountain on the square of St. Christopher. It is the story of the chaste Draga and the passionate Kalifront. Draga, who had promised herself to one of the goddesses, could not give her love to Kalifront, so the goddess turned her to stone to save her from the temptation. We can only guess what other vows were taken here.
The small town of Rab is encircled by medieval walls, Romanesque church towers, churches and palaces, stone streets and ancient facades. In summer, the streets and squares are turned into a huge gallery. Many painters exhibit their works, some of them self-styled, others who will soon exhibit in famous galleries around the world. Here in the crowd it is difficult imagining escaping from people. But there are places on Rab, a solitary beach, a park, that you can turn into your own secluded part of the world.
