For many tourists, Mljet is one of the islands lost in the open sea. In reality, this is an island which is difficult to reach. Do not let the landscape, mentioned in the stories of Odysseus, St. Paul, the Benedictines and Mediterranean monk seal, remains undiscovered. At first sight, Mljet is an elongated island, 3 km wide on average, and 37 km long. Nature-wise, Mljet is an island of particularities and contrasts. The Mljet National Park is located in the north-western part, and spreads over 5,375 ha of the protected land and the surrounding sea. The area was proclaimed a national park on 11 November 1960, and it represents the first institutionalized attempt at protecting the original ecosystem in the Adriatic.
