6 reasons why visit island Vis, Croatia

Island Vis is a small island off the coast of Croatia in the Adriatic sea, it’s also the farthest  inhabited Croatian island. Interesting fact is that in the 4th century BC, there was a Greek colony Issa founded on the island. Since then island has changed, and two large settlements developed on each side of the island, today known as the city of Vis and Komiža.

Island Vis is a major tourist destination that has kept its tradition and familiar Dalmatian architecture of stone-built houses and narrow streets. As a tourist destination it is a popular spot for yachts from all around the world and for the last two years it has been a stop on the famous music festival Ultra’s party tour.

Above all island Vis is a lovely island made for rest and relaxation under the golden sun on white beaches.
