    A real islands labirinth

    George Bernard Shaw wrote, by the aura of mystery and legend characteristic of these islands, that God at the end of creation, found himself with a handful of rocks, mix them in tears and breath and threw them at random on the sea surface and, pleased with the result, let them as they were.
    These islands of unbelievable shapes created a labyrinth of channels, bays, coves, harbors big and small, jutting capes above the sea surface. With their immense natural beauty Kornati islands were declared a National park in 1980. National park Kornati sizes about 220 km2 which consists of 89 islands, islets and reefs. National park Kornati was named after the biggest island in the group – Kornat.

    The Kornati islands were populated in prehistoric times; findings of stone hatchets at the bottom of the hill Pasinka on the islands of Kornati confirm the stated. The Kornati islands were a frequent target for invaders and thieves, from the Romans and the Venetians to the aristocracy from Zadar. There’s no fresh water here, and the islands are rocky and arid. In the past, their scanty vegetation was used for summer grazing, and shepherds and fishermen from Murter built stone cottages to use as seasonal accommodation. Although today these islands are only populated during the summer months, old field and fishing houses spread out in secluded inlets on the Kornati islands, give away the presence of their owners.

    One of the most impressive natural phenomena on Kornati are cliffs on many islands of the Lower Kornati, facing open sea. The cliffs have always been referred to as “crowns” (corona) and that is probably where the name of Kornati originates from. Some cliffs can reach even up to 100m under water. We will enjoying a spectacular cruise along the outer limits of Kornati Islands National Park, under the tall cliffs of Klobucar (80m high), Mana (65m) or Rasip veli (64m) and other magical islets and islands.There are a few laborer’s and fisherman’s houses scattered around quiet bays. The houses of fishermen act also as restaurants, where, if necessary, we can enjoy fresh fish for a lunch.

    We will visit this most Interesting sites:
    Islet of Taljuric – because of its oval shape it looks like a plate. It is dangerous for boats, because it is often covered with water.
    Island Piskera – is the second largest island in the national park, it was once the main fishing centre on the Kornati islands with a warehouse for salted fish.
    Mala Proversa – is a shallow passage between Dugi otok and the island of Katine. Ancient Roman ruins approximately 90m long are visible in the sea, which were once above sea level.
    Bay of Spinuta – in the bay, leftover wall ruins are visible of an Ancient Roman salt factory or of a fish cultivating pond.
