If we could describe heaven on Earth in just one word, we would tell it is Mljet. This garden of Eden, the National Park Mljet (from 1960.) is situated on this island on the open sea. It is a unique phenomenon thanks to its beauty, harmony of nature, landscaped bays, Mediterranean climate, and the two-pearls;small and large lake. It justifies the name of the national park because apart from the richness of its ancient forests, bays and islands, untouched natural oasis part of its harmony makes the rich cultural heritage. The first to point out is the Benedictine Monastery of St.. Mary from the 12th century, in the middle of the Great Lake as a mute witness to the cultural richness.
There are 3 camps on Mljet today , together with many private renters and restaurants, while the only hotel on the island is "Ulysses" in Pomena.
