Mljet National Park was protected in 1960 and occupies one third of the island of Mljet in the Dubrovnik archipelago. The park separates 5400 hectares with a seaside belt of about half a kilometre of coastline with surrounding islets and cliffs. The most famous locations are Little (Malo) and Great Lakes (Veliko jezero) and the isle of the St. Mary, which together represent the oceanographic and geological phenomenon. Veliko jezero is connected to the open sea by a long and wide canal from Great Bridge (Veliki most) through Soline Canal. It has the area of 1.45 kilometres square, and its maximum depth is 46 meters. Interesting is the influence of tide and oceans that creates strong sea currents through the channel connecting the lake with the sea. Benedictines built a mill here that was powered these currents and helped to produce salt. Veliki most was demolished in 1958 to allow the president of the former Yugoslavia Josip Broz Tito to enter into the lake with a yacht and was rebuilt in 2016. Benedictines inhabited shores of lakes in the 12th century when a Benedictine monastery was built on the isle of St. Mary on the south side of Veliko jezero. This is another phenomenon of Mljet - island on the island. Like the eye of a mythical creature twinkling with hairs of green pines on the most forested island in the Mediterranean. In addition to the monastery, we find the remains of medieval forts and Roman terms in Mljet. It is not only the land heritage that is important but also the diverse and fascinating undersea world of the island. The largest coral reef in the Mediterranean is here along with rich amphora finding sites. The island of Mljet is considered a paradise island and where ever you rent accommodation in Mljet, you will feel all the magic power of this beautiful piece of land impressed in playful Adriatic waves. Legend says that Mljet enchanted even Odysseus, who remained immersed for seven years here on his way back to Ithaca. Although the mythology attributed these magical powers to nymph Kalipso, there is a rumour all over Mljet that it is actually the Montokuc hill to blame, a place overlooking the whole island and both lakes. The entrance fee for the National Park Mljet is 50 kunas for children up, and for more information, please visit + 385 020 744 041 and / or email@example.com.
