Kornati

With 150 islands, the Kornati Islands are the densest archipelago in the Mediterranean. The largest island of the archipelago is Kornat, which is 25 km long. The Kornati islands were formed at the end of the ice age, when the surface of all the seas rose so much that the fields became the sea and the mountains became islands. The Islands are rich in flora, algae, and fauna, including fish, invertebrates, turtles, mammals, the monk seal and the like. The Kornati islands are also known for their dry walls. Since all larger islands are elongated, all the dry walls are built from sea to sea, i.e. from one side of the island to the other. In 1980, the Kornati archipelago was declared a national park, thus protecting the islands and their marine surroundings. Visitors are allowed to go anywhere in the park except in the areas around the cliffs Mala Purara, Violić and the Purara island. There are hiking trails leading to a lookout, which offers a perfect view of the Kornati islands.
