History of Vis

Despite of years, Vis retains its essence, traditions and tranquility untouched. Vis is impossible to remember without a hint of nostalgia. It is one of the oldest settlements in Croatia. Their culture is so rich that even has its own dialect. It has been ruled by Illyrians, Greeks, Romans, Englishmen, French, Austrians, Italians and Croats. Since 1945 was closed to tourism for being Yugoslav army base and only in 1989, when Yugoslavia was dissolved and Vis reintegrated to Croatia, it was reopened to foreign visitors. It was an important naval base, with up to 30 military buildings. The same partisan leader and posterior president of Yougoslavia, Josip Broz Tito, hid in one of island's caves, where was his headquarters during World War II. Now, however, peace that reigns on the island is one of the tourist magnets.

Vis natural beauty

Around the island there are many coves and beaches. The most photographed attraction and pride of the local inhabitants is Stiniva cove, a small bay enclosed by rocky walls 35m high. Many say Srebrena or Srebrna (Silver Beach) is one of the best beaches of the Adriatic. So check it: very crystalline water, lush forests and white stones. Meanwhile, Milna and Zaglav, only 10min. walking distance from each other, seem very original compared to the rest of the beaches of Croatia, being sandy, hard to find around here. Its shallow water is the perfect setting for the popular local play picigin (read: pitsihin), played with a small rubber ball in the sea. Stoncica, known as the Vis Hawaii, has a sandy bottom and beach volley court. Across the island, in Komiza, the best beaches are Gusarica, Nova Posta and Velo Zalo. Coming to Vis island without knowing Bisevo is unforgivable. It is this protected area where Modra Spilja (blue cave) is, similar to one in Capri, Italy.

Getting to the island of Vis

The usual and easiest way to get to Vis island is from Split port with ferry boat or catamaran speed boat. The port of arrival is Vis town port. Those who go to Komiza may take a local bus awaiting for ferry or catamaran passengers in the port. The connection Split-Vis with ferry boat takes 2:15h and with catamaran 1:10h, except on Tuesday when is 2:30h, because it connects Hvar town too. Inside the ferry there is cafeteria with beverages, ice cream and sandwiches, but passenger can brought their own snacks too. The port of Split is very busy in the summer so it is common to find long queues. We recommend arriving early enough to put your vehicle in boarding line and deal with time and tranquility to locate an indoor seating. In the harbor there are young men and women in white uniforms, working to support visitors with information and advice.
