National Park Mljet

Mljet National Park is the most important protected area of the Dalmatian south and it is the oldest National Park at the Adriatic. The park covers the western part of the island, which many regards as the most alluring in the Adriatic, full of lush and varied Mediterranean vegetation. The park includes two deep bays which, due to their extremely narrow links with the sea, are aptly named Great Lake and Small Lake.

St. Mary Island

There is a Benedictine monastery with the Church of Saint Mary on this beautiful isle, situated in the southern part of the Great Lake. The monastery was built from 1177 to 1198 initially and later the church. Over the centuries the church changed its appearance under the influence of different styles, the Renaissance and Baroque, but the central part remained Romanesque. The Church of Saint Mary as part of the monastery compound is a single nave Romanesque (Apulian) construction.
