Kornati is the largest and densest archipelago in the Adriatic, composed of 140 uninhabited islands, islets and reefs. The Kornati Islands of Croatia are full with cracks, caves, grottoes and rugged cliffs. While the history of Kornati, Croatia shows that the evergreens and holm oaks were all burned down a long time ago, the islands still hold great wonder.
Far from stripping the islands of their beauty, the deforestation has highlighted startling rock formations, of which stark whiteness against the deep-blue Adriatic is a wondrous sight.
The Kornati Islands form four groups running northwest to southeast. The first two groups of Kornati Islands lie closer to the mainland and are known locally as Gornji Kornat. The largest of these islands is Žut.
