Mljet is the first great island that we meet when sailing on the Croatian sea from the south-east towards the north-west. The national park of the same name covers the western part of this most beautiful island of the Adriatic. The island of Mljet also exhibits a rich cultural heritage. The most imposing example is the complex of the Benedictine convent from the 12th century. The convent is located on a small isle in the middle of a large lake and is surrounded by a Mediterranean park landscape. Over the course of the centuries numerous chronicles, papers and literary writing were written here and which represent today a most precious inheritance of Croatian history and culture. Mljet is our greenest island, with its flourishing Mediterranean vegetation, with its clean and limpid sea, sweet and sandy coasts and a submerged world full of life.
The national park of the same name covers the western part of this, the most beautiful island of the Adriatic. Almost the entire mainland area of the park is covered by thick Mediterranean pine woods, which particularly unfold their beauty at dusk. It is an island well known for the many varieties of red and white wine, with their specific aroma and strength, grown under the sun and on the ground of Mljet. Mljet is also known for its goat’s cheese, served in the traditional way on wooden boards and above all for the gentility and the spontaneity of the island people.
Connections by ferries and ships with Dubrovnik are daily, while in the summer months there is another line that connects Trstenik (peninsula of Peljesac) with Polace, which considerably reduces the travel time from the island of Mljet to Polace. During the summer months the area of the National Park (of the port of Placa and Pomena) is touched by the numerous tourist ships from Dubrovnik, Korcula, and Makarska.
