MLJET THE ISLAND OF ODYSSEUS
Mljet, in front of Dubrovnik, is a place to "get away from all".
The vegetation is one of the most precious treasures of Adriatic. The impact of green colour on the human eye gives a relaxing and comforting feeling. And when Mljet overwhelmes you, it is impossible to think of anything else...
The small island of Saint Maria is situated in the middle of the Veliko Jezero lake, famous for its Benedictine monastery from the 12th century which is listed as a historic monument.
