Croatia has more than 1200 islands on its coast. Lokrum island is situated just in front of the Old City and it is a peaceful escape from the city crowds. Elaphiti islands are a group of 13 islands and three of them are inhabited. Island of Mljet is a bit further away, but easily accessable with ferry. It is the greenest island on Croatian coast and 40 percent of the island is a protected national park.
