Croatia – Kornati National Park

The Kornati archipelago in Croatia is located in the northern part of Dalmatia, west from Šibenik. There are no permanent settlements in Kornati. Simple houses in well-protected coves such as Vruje, Kravjačica, Lavsa and others are used by land owners as temporary shelters. Most of the land owners are from the island of Murter and Dugi Otok.

In 1980 the islands were set aside as a national park; the present area of Kornati National Park is 234 sq km. The Park is managed by a special management body with the seat in Murter.
