View of the picturesque gulf of St. Euphemia on the island of Rab. Dynamic scenery creates boats that are sailing here every day and the surrounding trees and vegetation swinging in the wind.
At the bottom of the gulf, on the small hill next to the sea there is the Franciscan monastery of the same name and that's a reason why is gulf named like that. The monastery includes two churches - the church of St. Euphemia and St. Bernardin.
For all lovers of history there is a monastery library and a small museum that are the real treasury of historical events.
