|You can arrive at your
holiday destination on Rab Island by car, bus, train, aeroplane or ferry,
or a combination of any of the mentioned possibilities. If you have decided
to travel with bus, train or aeroplane, first travel to Rijeka from where
there are several daily local bus connections to Rab. Another possibility
is to catch a ferry to Rab Island (see ferry
timetable table). There are also a number of possibilities for travelling
to the island by car.
||If you happen to be travelling in the
direction of Munich – Salzburg – Ljubljana – Postojna - Rijeka or Milano
– Venice – Trieste – Rijeka, you can continue the rest of your journey
from Rijeka in the following ways:
You can continue directly from Rijeka to Krk Island (via
bridge) to the settlement of Baška, from where you can catch a ferry to
Lopar (Rab Island) or you can continue via the Adriatic highway through
Crikvenica and Senj to Jablanac, from where you can also catch a ferry
for Mišnjak (Rab Island). In 1997, the Adriatic Highway was completely
reconstructed between the towns of Novi Vinodolski and Karlobag, and the
construction of a network of motorways is under way. Once completed, the
motorways will greatly decrease travel time.
Travelling via the hinterland is also recommended, especially
if you are travelling from Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Poland
and Austria or if you are travelling from the direction of Nuremberg –
Passau – Graz. In this instance, you will travel via Zagreb and Karlovac
through the unique Velebit hill land to Senj, Jablanac and from there to
Rab via ferry.
If you chose to travel via different routes for your
arrival and departure you will then get to know more about the country
of your vacation. In this case, it is recommended that you travel via the
Plitvice Lake system, which is not only a world known National Park, but
enjoys the status of a World Heritage listing under the guidelines of UNESCO.
