Welcome to Mljet Island

Mljet Island

Covered by forests, vineyards and small villages, Mljet Island is most famous for its national park, occupying the western half of the island. The main attractions in the national park are the two salt water lakes, Veliko Jezero (Great Lake) and Malo Jezero (Small Lake), and the 12th-century Benedictine monastery situated on an island on Veliko Jezero. The lakes are popular for swimming and the beauty of this unspoilt oasis attracts nature lovers and the promise of tranquillity. Mljetsland is Croatia's greenest and is said to have captivated the Greek legend Odysseus for seven years.
