Published online: 8 September 2017
We present results of the Araucaria Project’s investigation of RR Lyrae stars as distance indicators in nearby galaxies. With an aid of near-infrared period-luminositymetallicity relations available in the literature we determined distance moduli to five Local Group galaxies with the uncertainty of about 5%.
