It is an island from which people left, but also continued living on.  Zlarin has some landmarks, the longest island seafront in Croatia? It is 131 meters long and 16 meters wide from where you have an amazing view. Its highest spot is hill Klepac (169 m) from which you will have an unforgettable view. From the top of the hill, during the sunny days, you can see the mountain of Velebit and far into the distance, the volcanic island of Jabuka.

There are cypress forests, pine forests, rosemary forests, figs, olives and other Mediterranean plants. Internal parts of the island are uninhabited, covered with dense forests and underbrush. It’s called the green island with its rights.
