The first and largest medieval summer fair in Croatia, Rabska fjera is based on tradition started 21st of July 1364, when the City Council of Rab decided to celebrate and honor King Louis the Great who freed them from the Venetian rule, as well as holiday honoring St. Christophor, patron saint of the town of Rab. Fjera used to last for 14 days celebrate and praise the saints powers that supposedly saved the town from destruction.
Every village on the island has their own fishermen's nights during the tourist season, so there is one almost every week. It is an oportunity for fishermen on Rab to demonstrate ancient fishing and cooking tehniques and entertain the guests. As the old Croatian proverb says a fish swims three times: In the sea, in olive oil and in wine. Enjoy Rab fishermans night!
