NATIONAL PARK MLJET: The National
Park Mljet was established in early sixties of
last century. It covers about 30 square kilometers of area on
the western bit of Island
MLJET, which is about 1/3 of the Island. It consist
of two natural salt lakes (Veliko and Malo jezero)
that are interconnected by a narrow channel. Veliko
jezero ( Large Lake) covers the area of 1,5 square
kilometers. Malo Jezero (Small Lake) is about 1/4 of square
kilometers. The salinity of the water in the lakes is bit lower
than in the sea, due to intake of fresh waters. The temperature
of the Lakes is usually higher then open sea temperatures for
about 4 degrees Centigrade. Due to these details, Veliko and
Malo Jezero are popular places for visitors to swim in. Both
lakes are surrounded with dense old pine forest. In the middle
of Veliko Jezero there is a little island called Melita where
Benedictine monastery is located. Walking and cycling are allowed all around National Park Mljet. Some parts of the
Nationa Park can be reached by car too. National Park Mljet
offers a lot of silence and numerous islolated spots to be enjoyed.
