Out of all Dalmatian islands on the eastern side of Adriatic Sea, Vis Island bears the title of most mysterious one. It is the furthest island from the Dalmatian coast and it spent much of its days in the past century as a military base for the Yugoslav National Army. That meant: full isolation from foreign visitors from the time after WWII right until the collapse of Yugoslavia at the beginning of the 90’s. The isolation was bad for the island’s economy but on the other hand it meant it will remain preserved from industrial development and pollution. Today, all visitors of the Vis island have the unique opportunity to enjoy in crystal clear water of open Adriatic. Also, because of the reasons written above, Vis island and Vis town became hotspot for all those seeking authenticity, nature, gourmet delight, peace and quiet.
Vis island is marked by two amazingly picturesque towns on the opposite sides of the world: Vis town on the northern part and Komiža village on the south west part of the island. Like on many Dalmatian islands, there exist a friendly rivalry between them: Vis town is historically associated with the upper-class nobility while on the other side, Komiža is proud of its fishing legacy and pirate history.
