The incredible combination of nature and man, who lives in Kornati for several thousands of years (as it has already been proven), which among other things reflects in always modest, but impressive buildings (port, flats, dry stone walls, olive groves, piers, forts, castles, churches, salt pans, ruins, etc.), which are additional and worthy decoration of the Kornati National Park area. Relatively large distance from the coast, biological richness of the marine area, pirate holdups, good pastures, barren karst soil, good shelter for an ugly time at sea, ... – these are all reasons for which Kornati have been both hospitable and inhospitable area throughout the human history. Constantly on the border of being populated or being unsettled, peace and turmoil, wealth and poverty, Kornati have always been a challenge for different cultures and different interests in this region.
