You can take a boat to the Island of Cres, tour the sights under the sea and perhaps find a dolphin along the way. In Rabac you are only 5 km away from Labin and its old city centre, where we recommend a visit to the People’s Museum where professional guides can teach you more about the past of this area and its mining history.
You can experience the mining history firsthand by touring one of the most important attractions at the museum, which is a 150 m long mining shaft in the basement of the building of the museum representing a unique model of a mine. In the old city centre you will also find the Matija Vlačić Ilirik Memorial Collection, a vocal church reformer from Labin. You can enjoy spectacular view of the surrounding area from Fortica or the top of the bell tower.
The Labin area also boasts Dubrova, with its artistic masterpieces submerged in greenery, the Sculpture Park and White Road where the works of world-renowned artists have been created over past decades.
