National Park Mljet
Mljet lies near the peninsula of Pelješac, at the south end of the long chain of Dalmatian islands that ends at the port of Dubrovnik. It is the eight largest Croatian island. The northwestern part of the island has been a national park since 1960, which many regard as the most alluring in the Adriatic, full of lush and varied Mediterranean vegetation. It is a beautiful area of 5.375 ha featuring two connected salty lakes, the Great Lake with a depth up to 46 m, and the Small Lake with a maximum depth of 29 m. The sea around the island is deep with an abundance of fish. It is unspoilt island covered by a dense Mediterranean forest, well-known for its red and white wine, olives and goat's cheese.
