Mljet National Park makes up most of the island. Located there are two salt water lakes – Veliko jezero and Malo jezero, the larger of which contains an island called St. Mary housing a Benedictine monastery.
Some of the best natural anchorages in the Adriatic are located in Polače, the biggest port of Mljet National Park.
Preserved from the Illyrian period, there are many fortifications and tombs in the Mljet National Park, and the best preserved are those on the hill of Veliki Gradac and the fortress at Vodice. The Roman Palace, which is the largest after Diocletian’s Palace in Split and the Arena in Pula, is a part of the valuable heritage of the island of Mljet.
