Is it better to leave a car in Prapratno or take it to Mljet?

Is it possible to safely leave a hire car parked at Prapatno Ferry Dock while I visit Mljet for 2 days ? It is much less expensive as a foot passenger and there seems little point in paying to take the car on the ferry if there are no cars allowed in the NP .

You can park a car in Prapratno. However, you need to pay a daily ticket during the season, possibly even outside of the summer months. The ticket costs at least 4-5 EUR per day during the summer season.

Keep in mind that only a part of Mljet is a national park, so you might find the car useful, especially considering that public transport doesn't reach many places directly and departures aren't very common.

On the other hand, roads are quite narrow and return ticket for a car costs cca 35 EUR, so leaving a car in Prapratno does offer some savings. Once on Mljet, you can also use taxis or rent a bike.
