Lastovo and the surrounding islands make up the Lastovo Islands Nature Park, one of eleven nature parks in Croatia. 70% of this group of islands is covered with trees, which makes Lastovo the second most 'ancient' Croatian island (after Mljet).
The island is also called the ‘island of bright stars’, with astrologers declaring it the most beautiful starry sky in all of Europe. This is due to the island having one of the darkest skies on the continent, as well as due to low light pollution. With this feature, the island simply invites you to visit it, and you will keep the memory of it for the rest of your life, telling the story of the perfect blend of bright stars and blue crystal sea.
