After these long and cold winter days, take advantage of pleasant temperatures and upcoming national and school holidays to soak up some much needed sunshine. It’s the perfect period for outdoor activities, morning coffee on the terrace with a sea view and soaking up some vitamin D. Take a break from the hectic city pace and enjoy a walk in nature, by the Adriatic sea. With just the right amount of sun, warm temperatures, people and a fresh sea breeze, spring is like a touch of summer, before summer.

On the hill above Rabac you can see the medieval town of Labin, with rich cultural and architectural heritage. A great idea for an afternoon walk through the narrow streets of the Old Town and catching a sunset at the stone walls, overlooking the islands.
