Interesting facts about Kornati
Why there are no green areas on Kornati islands? At times there was a thick oak forest on the Kornati islands, but due to the need for pasture and cultivable land, it was in the ancient times and the millennial exploitation of these areas resulted in the defoliation and conversion of the island to the rocky terain.There are no permanent inhabitants on the islands, and it is interesting that most of the area belongs to the inhabitants of the island of Murter who are coming by to check out their olive groves, vineyards and orchards.
Due to its beauty, unique geomorphology, rich flora and fauna, the archipelago was proclaimed National Park in 1980.
