Telašćica is founded as Nature Park in 1988, but thanks to its exceptionally valuable plant and animal life, geological and geomorphologic phenomena, valuable colonies of the sea bottom and interesting archaeological heritage this area became protected in 1980.
Park is contrasted area with peaceful beaches and laid down coastline on one side and wild and rough cliffs on the other. It is the area of cultivated fields of vineyards and olive-trees. There are several natural phenomena within the park and one of them is salt lake Mir. It is 10 metres deep and the fine, healing mud can be found on its south-eastern side. Another phenomena are the cliffs, rising up to 161 m above the sea level and falling down vertically up to 90 m below the sea level.
Telašćica has been inhabited since ancient times, as can be seen from Roman remains in Mala Proversa and numerous pre-Romanesque churches. The oldest document about fishing trade dates from the end of the 10th century and it shows that the fishing trade in Croatia began on these coasts.
Park can visit with excursion boats from Zadar or by ship lines Zadar-Sali and than hike from Sali to the bay which is about 2 hours until lake Mir.
