Recently, I noticed that it has been quite some time since I last posted an entry to my CJ. So, here are a few pics of a typical Illyrian coastal town: Rab. I hope to add more entries soon.

First stop is the central square dominated by the town hall from the XVIIth century.

Rab is a populair tourist destination in the Empire. Tourist started to come here at the end of the XIXth. In the period many splendid hotels were built in Rab, as well as the (rather small) railway station.

The town centre was first founded on a rocky peninsula in 1165 and still contains many old houses and churches.

On the site of the former harbour a marina was constructed in the 1970s.

And finally the town overview. On top the railway viaduct, constructed in 1878.

Great to see you back - this is one of my personal favorite CJs. I love what you have shown here. I've never been to Marseille, I think the way the town leads up to the church at the end of the peninsula reminds me a bit of Segovia (not that it is surrounded by rivers like here).

[*]TekindusT: I know it took me very long to post anything, I was very busy in RL. Great to see you around again!

[*]nycsc4: I found out that some hotels still have a few rooms left... Thanks!

[*]Schulmanator: Thank you, great to see you again here!
[*]JGellock: thank you. That is also one of the reasons this CJ doesn't have many updates.
[*]hackinosa: I checked Marseille's layout on google and I can see the resemblance. The town center was however loosely based on Rab (Croatia) and the rest of the town is completely fictional.
[*]Benedict: and great to have you back!
[*]10000000000000: thanks!!
