Photo of the Day: Contrasting Landscape

A view of Telašćica Nature Park and Kornati National Park in the background. Telašćica Bay is located in the central part of the Croatian Adriatic on Dugi Otok Island.

The area of Nature Park Telašćica is a distinctly contrasted area with quiet and peaceful beaches and a laid down coastline on one side, with wild and steep cliffs on the other, an area of Aleppo pine and holm oak forests on one side, and barren karst on the other, an area of cultivated fields covered in vineyards and olive groves, but also an area of degraded forms of vegetation covering dry habitats.

Three basic phenomena represent the basic characteristics of this area: the unique Telašćica Bay as the safest, most beautiful and largest natural port of the Adriatic with 25 small beaches, the cliffs of Dugi Otok rising up to a height of 161 metres above the sea and reaching down to a depth of 90 metres, and the salt lake Mir with its medicinal properties.
