Mljet is the most easterly and southerly of the larger Adriatic islands of Dalmatia region, Croatia. It has a total area of 98.01 km2 (37.84 ml2) and a population of 1090 inhabitants (2011 census). The National Park includes island's western part, Malo jezero, Veliko jezero, Soline Bay and a 500 m wide sea belt from the most prominent Mljet's cape covering an area of 54 km2 (21 ml2).
The island of Mljet has a rich history of eco-damage. In an attempt to ease their transport problems, the monks from the Mljet monastery dug a channel from the lake Veliko Jezero to isle's south coast, thus turning two fresh-water into seawater-based lakes.
The 2nd incident involves mongooses. In the early 20th century small Asian mongooses were introduced on the island in order to reduce the poisonous snake population because Mljet was completely overrun. However, while the mongooses completed the task, they disposed of much all the island's birdlife. To this day, Mljet Island is short of hedgerow birds like sparrows.
Mljet Island has no airport, so Dubrovnik Airport on mainland Croatia provides the international connection for the isle. Mljet offers ferry lines with Dubrovnik and Peljesac peninsula. Transportation to Mljet is provided by Jadrolinija ferry service. The main port on the island, Sobra, is connected to Dubrovnik-Gruz and Ston via car ferry. There are 2 type of ferries available: car ferry and faster catamaran ferry (2.5 h and 90 min to Dubrovnik, respectively).
Highlights: Pomena, St Mary's Monastery
