Photographer's Note

Hi people.
Not very different then others, but sorry, is not my fault! It must be fault of this beautiful Croatian unspoiled nature. ;-)
I have really never seen such a wonderful nature with so many nature parks as here in a short distance.

This is taken on Murter, 15 km. via roadway from Vodice. This is a part of another National Park KORNATI which lie very nearby NP KRKA. I wrote about that a few days ago.

"As many as there are days in the year . . . so many are the islands in the Kornati group", claims a folk saying. To tell the truth, there are not as many, but -- to tell the truth again - the Kornati are the most highly indented and "densest" group of islands in
the European part of the Mediterranean. About 140 islands, islets and reefs are scattered over an area of some 300 sq. km. Their total area is 69 sq. km. Different authors give different figures for the number of islands in the group -- not because they cannot be exactly counted but because the membership of some islands in the boundary regions of the group is disputed. Also, several reefs are exactly at sea level and are therefore treated differently
by different sources. Though the whole of the eastern Adriatic coast is highly indented, the Kornati group is exceptional even compared with the rest of the Croatian coast, and the resulting land and seascape is unique and unrivalled. The islands form four series running strictly parallel with the Dinaric range (northwest-southeast). They are named after the largest island in the group, Kornat, which provides the central backbone for the whole archipelago. The boundaries of the group are Dugi Otok in the northwest, the Zirje islands in the southeast, the islands of Pasman, Vrgada and Murter towards the mainland, and the open sea in the southwest. The length of the archipelago (northwest-southeast) is 25 km, and its greatest width (northeast-southwest) 13 km.
The Kornati are interesting also as the largest uninhabited -- or only seasonally inhabited -- land mass in the Adriatic. The owners of land on Kornati (most of them from the Island of Murter) have built here some 300 houses to serve as temporary accommodations for their visits. The first two series of islands are lower, sloping towards the mainland, and smaller in size and number than the other two series. They are known locally as Gornji Kornat. The largest island in this series is Zut - 14.8 sq. km. Its coastline is most indented in the whole series.
