National park Mljet Croatia is located in south Dalmatia, one of three Croatian National parks that are spread over the island ( Mljet, Kornati, Brijuni)

Situated on the island of the same name, Mljet National Park is the most important protected area of the Dalmatian south. Ć

The park covers the western part of the island, which many regard as the most alluring in the Adriatic, full of lush and varied Mediterranean vegetation.

The park includes two deep bays which, due to their extremely narrow links with the sea, are regarded as and indeed named lakes: the Great Lake and the Small Lake. Mljet is also very rich in cultural heritage, the most prominent example being the complex of the 12th century Benedictine monastery.

The monastery is located on a small island in the middle of the Great Lake and is set in a lush park. Over the course of centuries, numerous chronicles, dissertations and other literary works have been written here. Located within the monastery is the church of St Mary.

There are various sport activities available on Mljet as well as the accommodation possibilities. It is particulary popular by the peaceful and calm holidays in beautiful nature.
