Island of Mljet

The island of Mljet has been so far my favourite Croatian island in Dalmatia. Over 72% of the island is covered with forest and there aren’t big cities, just small villages dispersed around the island. The whole island was very relaxing when we visited it. We found amazing views, lakes and deserted beaches. We visited its beautiful National Park with the big (Veliko Jezero) and small lakes (Malo Jezero) – the water was so blue and crystal clear! – and explored the amazing landscapes covered with pine trees. We hiked to Odysseus’s cave, where according to the legend Calypso – a nymph in Greek mythology – detained Odysseus for several years. We walked a lot (really a lot) and explored even more. The weather was really good, specially on the second day when we were blessed with a warm and sunny day. We laughed a lot like we hadn’t done for a long time, and it felt really good.

Today I don’t feel like writing so much, so I’ll just share our photos of this paradisical island. Sometimes a picture is worth 1000 words :)
