Island Rab

The Island of Rab's history predates written records, with evidence of Paleolithic habitation in Lopar.

Neolithic and Libum cultures followed, likely establishing the present port and city. Greek and Roman geographers referred to Rab as Arba, Arva, Arbia, or Arbitana. The name's origin, possibly meaning "umber, dark, forested," reflects the island's characteristics. Adapted by Slavic Croats, it became Rab around the 7th century.

The earliest Croatian reference is in a 15th-century Latin decree on the foundation of St. Euphemia abbey, housed in the island's museum.
