Kornati is considered the densest and most complex European Mediterranean archipelago. They consist of approximately 150 islands. In the past, the Islands have had agricultural, livestock and fishery value, and today it is more focused on tourism. Some parts of the Kornati Islands were declared as a National park of Kornati Islands in 1980. The archipelago and the seabed is very rich in flora and fauna, which many of them are endemic but there is still no sufficient data about the flora and fauna because it is not sufficiently explored. They are also important in cultural and historical sense also because there are visible traces of another time. There are visible evidences of mostly temporary settlements like houses, small piers, sheepfolds, religious buildings, forts and dry walls made only from stacking stone, which can only be found in some places in Dalmatia. The best known religious building is Catholic Church Madonna of Tarac (orig. Gospe od Tarca) and Tureta fort, both located on Kornat Island. On the offshored Kornati Islands are located well known cliffs, which are greatest on island of Mana. There can also be found the specific landslide called Magazinov Landslide (orig. Magazinova škrila) which occupies a large area of island of Kornat. Generally, the Kornati Islands are still well preserved habitat but greater measures of protection should be taken to keep it in that way.
