Welcome to the island of Mljet, the most beautiful and most forested island in the Adriatic and one of the most beautiful pearls of the Mediterranean. Untouched nature, the island’s mysticism, olive groves, vineyards and rich forests are ideal places to research the rich flora and fauna and to peacefully enjoy the pristine beauty of the natural surroundings.
It was already mentioned in the fourth century BC in Greek writing, and the numerous Greek amphora and shipwrecks along the coast of Mljet are evidence that Greek sailors stayed on the shores of Mljet during their journeys. Mljet National Park makes up most of the island, and there are several villages, two saltwater lakes – Veliko and Malo Jezero, and a Benedictine monastery on the island of Sv. Marija [St. Mary] . In Polače there are some of the best natural anchorages in the Adriatic.
