One of the most notable cities is certainly the medieval town of Labin. A city that has a unique old town centre with art studios, a city with a view of the Kvarner and city Rabac just below the hill. Rabac is written in history as a fishing village, but in recent history, it certainly ranks as one of the top tourist destinations.
