Cruise towards the island of Mljet where upon arrival you can visit Mljet National Park.

Being closed during the time of ex-Yugoslavia, this wonderful island is still like an unspoiled and preserved oasis. Though if Vis looks and sounds familiar to you these days, it could be because the island was used as the setting for Mama Mia 2. The afternoon is free to explore - perhaps visit the remains of the Roman Thermal Place, the City Museum or simply take a walk enjoying the views of the beautiful Villae Rusticae situated along the waterfront. There are many excellent restaurants and taverns along the promenade where you can enjoy a glass of local wine and try some fresh seafood which the island is known for.
