Island Mljet
Island Mljet
90% of this island is under a dense forest, making Mljet the greenest island in the Mediterranean. Mljet can be reached by ferry from Dubrovnik or Korčula . Its western part was declared a national park. The park’s overall surface is 5375 acres. The salt water lakes on the island named Malo i Veliko jezero are a unique oceanographic phenomena that is over 10000 years old. Interesting is the fact that up to 2000 years ago the water in the lakes was fresh water. The carst of the island hides other natural beauties like caves and rare brake water lakes, that suddenly disappear over a period of time and then reappear.

The mountain peak and highest point of the park is St. George, 1.742 above sea level, with 16 other mountain peaks above the 1400 meters altitude line.

Kornati islands
Kornati islands
Because of the unique shapes and beauty, the Kornati archipelago was declared a National park already in 1980. With its overall surface area of 70 km2 and 140 islands, the archipelago has become a paradise for yacht owners, divers and individualists enjoying the blue and clear sea and many attractive coral riffs. Many call the National park also a “Robinsonian paradise”, since the majority of the islands in non-inhabited. The archipelago was named on behalf of the largest island, the island “Kornat” (32,6sqm), which in Croatian language means “Crown”. Accordingly the famous quote of George Bernard Shaw is extracted from this: “The last day of creation God wanted to crown his masterpiece and created the Kornati islands out of stars, tears and divine breath”.
 
Krka waterfalls
Krka waterfalls
The Krka waterfalls are definitely among the most beautiful and spectacular natural phenomena of Croatia. The waterfalls are 70 km distant from Split. In the upper flow of the Krka river, between the towns of Skradin and Knin the water flows through a canyon of 100 – 200 meters depth, then through a series of lakes, after which it passes over seven waterfalls and an overall elevation drop of 242 meters on its way to the sea. The national park Krka was founded in 1985 and covers the area along the river flow, between the towns Skradin and Knin. Skradin lies only 20 km north of the coastal town Šibenik and is reachable by boat.
