Vis Island is a pearl among the Croatian Adriatic islands. From the 1950s right up until 1989, the island served as a military zone and foreign foreigners were not allowed to come to the island.

Since the independence of Croatia, the island has opened to the outside world, offering its untouched natural beauty, unique traditions, history, and cultural heritage. Vis has now become a popular tourist destinations in Croatia.
