Great Lake

The Great Lake is located on the western part of Mljet. It covers an area of 145 hectares, and its maximum depth is 47 metres. It merges with the open sea through a canal at a place called Veliki most (Great Bridge). At the site of the Great Bridge, which was demolished in 1958, the Benedictines built a mill which was driven by the currents created by changing tides. The island of St. Mary is located in the southern part of the lake. There you can find the remains of Roman architecture. In the 12th century the Benedictines built a monastery and church, which still exist, on the island.
