Rab crossbowmen knights tournaments

09.05.2022. - 30.05.2022. / Rab

The tradition of the knights’ games of the Rab crossbowmen was revived in 1995 with the founding of the Association of Rab Crossbowmen (the first knights’ games had been held in 1364). Along with knights’ games, costumes from the Middle Ages also returned.

The games are held several times a year on St Christopher’s Square in Rab: 9 May (Day of the Town of Rab); 30 May (Croatian Statehood Day); 27 July (the feast day of St Christopher, patron saint of the town of Rab – a festival and Rab crossbowmen tournament) and 15 August (Assumption Day – a festival and Rab crossbowmen tournament).
