POLACE, a village in the bay bearing the same name, in the western part of the northern coast of the island of Mljet. Main occupations are farming and fishing. The bay is 5.6 km long and up to 3.9 km wide; it is protected by a range of small, almost completely bare and unpopulated islands. Due to the closeness to Veliko and Malo Lakes, Polace is also the harbour of the Mljet lakes.
Due to excellent maritime conditions and its cultural and historical heritage, Polace is frequented by numerous boaters and lovers of antiquities. Major attractions include covertness of the deep bay, tranquillity of a small place, an excellent offer of fresh fish and other seafood, and intact nature.
Polace features a number of remains of ancient structures from the 1st to the 6th century. The most important monument is a monumental palace, probably the summer residence of the Germanic comitatus Pierus. On the corners of the front are two polygonal towers (one preserved in the height of 20 m), between whom is a pier.
On a hill above Polace are the remains of a late antique fortification; northwest of the village are the remains of an early Christian basilica. West of it are the well preserved remains of a church from the 5th century, doubled in the 6th century by an attached mem-orial chapel, and extended with a vestibule in the Middle Ages.
