…on Island Rab
Rab is linked to the mainland with good road-ferryboat connections. To the south, ferryboats on the route Mišnjak – Stinica (a place 105 km from the city Rijeka) runs here all year round, the trip takes 15 minutes, with departures every one or two hours out of season, and continually in the summer months. This is the best connection between the island and the mainland. From Stinica roads branch off towards Zagreb, Pula, Ljubljana and Trieste. The internal part of the continent may be reached through the so called ‘Jozefinska cesta’, a road leading from Senj (50 km away from Rab), through the saddle of Vratnik, Velika, Mala Kapela and Lika, to Karlovac and Zagreb.
To the north, the island is connected by ferryboat on the route Lopar- Valbiska (Island Krk). The ferry service from the port of Lopar on the north side of the island of Rab to the port of Valbiska on the island of Krk and back operates all year round, with departures twice a day, four times a day in the summer months. The journey takes one hour and 30 minutes.
A return catamaran service for passengers only runs from the port of Rijeka to the port of the town of Rab. It is maintained all year round, with departures once daily. The journey takes an hour and 45 minutes. (www.jadrolinija.hr)
