The island of Lastovo belongs to the Central Dalmatian islands. It is located 55 nautical miles from Split and Dubrovnik. The island has a mild Mediterranean climate. Lastovo is one of the sunniest islands in the Adriatic – it has an average of 2700 hours of sunshine per year. The average air temperature is 8.3oC in January and 24.9oC in August.

Around 800 inhabitants live in five villages: Ubli, Pasadur, Zaklopatica, Skrivena Luka and Lastovo, the island’s largest village and administrative centre.

Material cultural and historical heritage in the villages of Lastovo and Lučica, their ecclesiastical (38 churches and chapels) and secular architecture, as well as archaeological sites on land and under the sea, testify to the rich history of the island. However, one must not forget the non-material heritage; the ritual of the Lastovo Carnival, which dates back to 1483, and which is listed among Croatia’s protected non-material cultural goods, is the most important annual event in the life of the island.

The island’s pristine nature, biological diversity of the land and sea, geological features and cultural and historical heritage received yet another acknowledgement when the Lastovo Archipelago was declared a Nature Park. The Lastovo Archipelago Nature Park consists of 44 islands, islets, rocks and reefs covering a total area of 196 square kilometres, 53 square kilometres of land and 143 square kilometres of sea.

Astronomers recognized Lastovo as a dark sky destination – with the limiting magnitude of 21.7 and approx. 30% light pollution, the Lastovo sky is the darkest sky in Europe, where the Milky Way is visible to the naked eye.

You can discover the exquisite and manifold Lastovo cuisine in numerous restaurants, taverns or family farm restaurants in the fields.

Active visitors will be delighted by hiking and biking trails, sports fishing, swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving.

The Culture Summer events include numerous concerts and events hosting Croatian and foreign musicians and artists, with the Alternative Urban Music Festival as its central event.
