Kornati National Park is located in the central part of Croatian Adriatic Sea around 80 Nm from Split. First thing you should know is that the only way to visit NP Kornati is by boat, so you can use a taxi boat or book our one day trip that includes transportation.
With more than 35 kilometres in length and 140 islands in a sea area of about 320 square kilometres, the Kornati are the densest archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea. The archipelago name came from the name of the largest island called Kornat.
Kornati National Park
Kornati is unique beacuse there are no permanent settlements in entire archipelago, only a few simple houses in well-protected coves that are used by mainland landowners as temporary shelters. Kornati National Park was declared in 1980. for the protection of the islands and their marine surroundings. This made a big impact on the preservation of the nature and wildlife. Do you know how did the islands from the Kornati archipelago get their name? The names of the islands Babina Guzica (buttocks) and Kurba Vela (prostitution) offer an opportunity to explain the many vulgar names officially given to places in the Kornati archipelago. The local guides mocked Austrian surveyors which came to record the archipelago at the end of the 19th century, by making up vulgar names for the various locations :).
