Why?

• Splendorous sights of this beautiful nature park.
• Telescopes will reveal 0.5 to 4 magnitudes fainter objects in comparison with the majority of amateur observatories in Europe.
• Seeing is considerably better at Lastovo than in most of Europe, so fainter objects are more easily visible with more details.
• Observing the Milky Way as you may not have seen it before.
• Under good conditions you might see the reflection of the Milky Way in the sea.
• Night swimming in water with luminescent plankton (visible only in dark places).
• Warm, crystal clear sea, also great for swimming and diving.
