    Location of Vis

    The port city is in Croatia, in Split-Dalmatia County. Vis is located in the north-eastern part of the island of the same name, next to St. George’s Bay. The port is protected from the open sea by the Island of Host and the Prirovo Peninsula.

    History of Vis

    Vis has a long and interesting history. According to the Croatian Historia, Grga Novak, the ancient town was founded in 397 BC. So Vis can be the oldest settlement in Croatia and the Eastern Adriatic region. We can still visit the remains of the city walls, theatre and bathhouse from the Greco-Roman period. Vis was built on the foundation of two settlements, Kut and Luka.
    Through the years the town was under Venetian, Austrian, and then French rule. In 1811 the British took control, who had naval superiority. They made Vis a trade centre, an important stop for wine and salt trade. After Napoleon’s final defeat the Austrian acquired the land again. Then, from 1918 to 1921 the Italian ruled over Vis. After 1921 Vis became part of the Serbian-Croatian-Slovenian State, and then Yugoslavia. Vis has belonged to independent Croatia since 1991.
