Sailing in Croatia


Standing grand and commanding on the northwestern tip of Dugi Otok, Veli Rat lighthouse is the tallest lighthouse on the Croatian coast. At its 42 meters, it is nearly as tall as Arc de Triomphe. Built in the mid-19th century, it is also the yellowest lighthouse of the era. As oral traditions tell - that is due to over 100.000 egg yolks used in its construction! The small romantic chapel next door bears the name of the patron saint of sailors, St. Nicholas.
