Kornati National Park

Few places in the Mediterranean concentrate so much of what the modern tourist needs for complete relaxation in such a relatively small area, as do the Kornati Islands. The Kornati are the densest island group in the Adriatic, with small fields, hidden oases of large-crowned pines and olives, quiet and sheltered bays that are ideal for escaping the noise and worry of civilization. The cultural traces of the past, scattered all over the rocks of this now so peaceful stone desert, are proof of permanent and restless life in this region.
The islands stretch parallel with the Dinaric Mountains from Dugi otok to the end of Kurba Vela and include 89 islands, islets and rocks - all together 35 km long and about 13 km wide. They were named after the biggest island, Kornat.
Over the centuries the Kornati have passed from Croatian rulers to the Venetians and to Zadar nobles, and after the abolition of feudalism their masters became farmers from Murter, Betina and Sali. The Venetians and uskok pirates burnt and plundered them, as did the Nazi-Fascists in the World War II.
The Kornati are uninhabited and wild, with untouched nature, bizarre micronesia landscapes and magnificent natural beauties: sunsets, storms, etc. This is why they attract so many tourists and are important for the development of excursion, sports and nautical tourism. The sea bed close to the shore is made up of rocks of magical shapes: sharp points, bare slabs, deep fissures, cracks and caves, in which red corals, pearly shells, sea snails and shellfish in hundreds of different shades live.
If you want to visit the Kornati or to spend a few days there with your Kornati hosts, you must turn from the Adriatic Tourist Road, on the way from Zadar towards Šibenik and drive to Tisno, crossing the bridge to the island of Murter. Continue to the town of Murter, whose inhabitants own over 200 fishing cottages scattered throughout the picturesque coves of the Kornati Islands. A holiday can be spent on one of the temporarily inhabited islands, completely cut off from civilization with bythe sea and maestral breeze, in the company of fishermen and seagulls, in a fishing cottage or in a tent – like a present-day Robinson Crusoe.
