Kornati National Park

Part of an island archipelago in the Adriatic Sea

The Kornati National Park is actually part of an island archipelago of 130 islands and islets, located in the Adriatic Sea. The largest of these islands is Kornati island, hence the name of the national park.

The Kornati islands tend to be rocky and are covered with Mediterranean scrubs. You will also find numerous olive groves and vineyards, which make for an incredibly scenic sight. But, there is no natural spring water on the islands, so be sure to bring your own.
