The Croatianmarker Kornati archipelago is located in northern Dalmatia, west from Šibenikmarker, in Šibenik-Knin countymarker. With 150 islands in a sea area of about 320 km² Kornati are the densest archipelago in the Mediterranean Seamarker.

The southern part of the archipelago, which roughly corresponds to the part of the archipelago called Donji Kurnat (Lower Kurnat) was declared a national park in 1980.

Kornat, with its area of 32,525,315 m², the biggest of the islands, comprises two-thirds of the park's land area. Although the island is 25.2 km long, it is no wider than about 2.5 km.

There are no permanent settlements in Kornati. Simple houses in well-protected coves such as Vruje, Kravjačica, Lavsa and others are used by land owners as temporary shelters. Most of the land owners are from the island of Murtermarker.

In August 2007, a fire on Kornat island resulted in the death of 12 Croatian firefighters.
