Next, we’ll take a journey to Kornati Archipelago & National Park, a stunning group of islands renowned for their natural beauty and marine biodiversity.

Here, you’ll also have the opportunity to dive in and see the FRANCESCA wreck, explore vibrant coral reefs, or photograph the unique karst limestone cliffs. Throughout the area, you also find many nature parks and ancient fortifications. The best time to visit is late spring to early autumn; for the best underwater visibility, just carry a waterproof camera to capture the vivid marine life and picturesque landscapes.
