SIGHTS and ATTRACTIONS:

Kornati National Park  is composed of 89 uninhabited islands and islets. Kornati are the most rugged group of islands in the Mediterranean. Their name comes from the Latin word „corona“ which means crown. According to the tradition, God wanted to crown his work on the last day of Creation, so He created Kornati islands out of tears, stars and breath.

Levrnaka is an uninhabited island in Kornati whose area is 1.84 km. The highest peak is the 118-meter-high Veli vrh and in the southeast is the 94-meter-high Svirac. Between these two peaks is Levrnaka Bay. The bay is open to the north, and the great depth makes anchoring difficult. On the southwest side of the island is Lojena beach.

Telašćica Nature Park is situated at the south-eastern side of Dugi otok island. There are five small islands and five even tinier islets inside the bay. At the tip of the western side of the bay stretches the largest rocky cliff in the Adriatic, which reaches incredible 166 meters height and goes 85 meters deep into the sea. Nearby is a salty lake “Mir” which is well-known for its high salt content and medicinal mud.
