Island Ist

Ist (Italian: Isto) is a small island off the Dalmatian coast of Croatia. The closest city to Ist is Zadar. The island has an area of 9.65 km2.[1] Ist is located between the islands of Škarda and Molat.The entire island has a permanent population of 202.[2] During the past 50 years it has witnessed a slow depopulation which has halved its number of inhabitants. The Government of Croatia is attempting to attract people to the island through its National Programme of Islands’ Development as well as economic revival (which could potentially result in the construction of a bridge to nearby Molat). Recently the island has benefited from the development of tourism.Source: Wikipedia
