Rakalj is a small place on a eastern coast of Istria. It is placed on a rocky field, surrounded by beautiful and untouched nature and pure sea. The air is mixed up with freshness of Mediterranean herbs and as soon as you come in our village, you will feel the pleasure of coming so far.

He was an writer, poet, but first of all fisherman, sailor, and just hard worker, just like many of humble people you will find when you come in this beautiful village.
