    “We were already in Rakalj. It is wonderfully quiet there, secluded from the tourist bustle. In the village you get in a small supermarket everything necessary, in the area (neighboring places) there are nice restaurants. The way to the sea should be described if necessary.”

    “Food in Rakalj directly, a typical place with very few dishes. Nice service. On weekends very crowded. A pizza bar, very busy on weekends. A small village shop, where you can pay, if that internet works also with card. It does not always work. Euro is not an alternative in Rakalj. Everything og within walking distance from the house in 5 minutes reachable. Cycling from our side as a passionate cyclist not recommended, very narrow streets, no light, very fast drivers, not all bicyclists pay attention. Beaches not always clean, that is because many bathers leave their garbage, and the beaches pebble / rock, were not cleaned. Very nice is the water clear and clean. Beaches without any direct signposts from the place .... if you find them, that is a bit complicated at first.”

    “The house is in an area that requires car to get around, there is a small shop in the village and some restaurants (which we did not try). However, if you have a car, you can easily reach nearby villages or into Pula.”

    “Rakalj is a very small village, where one finds the most necessary. If you are looking for some variety, it is certainly not the right one. To the beautiful bays one drives with the car about 10 min, partly natural roads. But highly recommended.”

dishes on menu. The old town of Rakalj is the closest to the see but today it is mainly uninhabited. In that part there are ruins of the old castle and the church of St. Agnes to be found. The church is situated on the top of the hill offering magnificent view at the see. There are no regular Sunday Masses in the church accept on several traditional occasion a year. There are also wedding ceremonies in the St Agnes church. Couples come from nearby smaller towns as well as from bigger cities. At the site where the old middle age castle used to be the remains of the prehistoric hill-fort are found as well as remains of Roman fort. The castle itself was probably built at the beginning of the 11th century and was later known as Castellare de Rachir. In 1535 the Istrien VillaVenetians granted the Old Rakalj and the New Rakalj to the Loredan family but the castle was in such a bad condition that Loredans abandoned it and moved to today Rakalj.
