Historical and Natural Treasures in The Town of Vis

The town of Vis is a jewel of historical and cultural heritage. Recent studies have shown that it is the oldest Croatian town, though Stari Grad on the island of Hvar was for a long time considered to be so. The island was already inhabited in the Neolithic period, and since then the Illyrians, the Greeks, the Romans, the Venetians and the Austro-Hungarians have inhabited it. All these peoples have left their mark on the island in the ways of living, the styles of building, and the beliefs. Apart from hearing stories from the ancient past and seeing monuments, you will hear interesting stories from the recent past. As with anywhere, myths and legends are the most memorable and cherished aspects of a culture. Walking and looking around town, listen to the whispers of inhabitants past and present. In addition to its rich history, Vis boasts many unusual natural phenomena, like the Modra (Blue) and Zelena (Green) špilje (caves). At a certain point of the day, a magic of light happens within them, and you can be a part of it.
