Veli Rat Lighthouse (Dugi Otok)
Veli Rat Lighthouse is an active lighthouse on the Croatian island of Dugi Otok, and is a well known landmark near to the village of the same name. The single storey keeper’s house is built around the base of the 36m masonry tower, which has a white lantern and single gallery. The yellow walls of the house were reputedly painted using a mixture that was coloured by the use of thousands of eggs. This was allegedly to give better consistency and protection against the salt air.
