This island of Vis is a pearl in the crown of beautiful Croatian Adriatic islands. Due to its strategic location towards the open sea, for decades Vis had been a military zone that left it untouched by tourism. Since Croatia’s independence the island has gradually started opening to the world, offering its unique traditions, history, cultural heritage and natural beauties. Ever since Vis is surely becoming one of the most popular tourist destinations in Croatia.
