Kornati National Park is the perplexing sum of 89 unforgettable islands, islets and reefs, noted for their varied, unusual forms and extraordinary relief structure. Their appearance is something like semi-desert and the cliffs on the open-sea side can reach up to 100 m high. These are surely one of the most impressive natural phenomena on Kornati.
The Kornati islands are extremely rich in underwater flora and fauna, with a multitude of different species. The land on the other side is relatively poor in fauna, undoubtedly the result of sparse vegetation cover and the presence of man. Such presence is visible in the island’s pastures, which are contained by drywalls of a seemingly neverending length.
The fortress of Tureta is the most significant one on the islands, dating from the Byzantine period (8th century).
