Kornati are "the labyrinth of land and sea". George Bernard Shaw wrote: "On the last day of the Creation God desired to crown His work and. thus created Kornati Islands out of tears, stars and breath". Esthetic value of the area primarily refers to memorable views from some of Kornati's magnificent belvederes. Spread on the intensive blue Adriatic Sea, Kornati islands form a sea crown made of approximately 150 islands and islets.
Their vicinity is enriched by the islands of Murter, connected to the mainland by a bridge, Krapanj and Zlarin, which have been Kornati's neighbours from the earliest history, and whose population has largely contributed to the development of tourism and distinguished richness of Croatian seabed. Large number of yachtsmen regularly visits those islands to meet the population whose ancestors defended the islands from pirates, but also to take some of the world famous souvenirs - corals or sea sponges.
Coast of Sibenik (Šibenik) is protected by a crown of the sea king. Pirates have never devastated it because the king, colored in crystal-blue tones, has always defied all sea monsters that got close to it.
