Vis Town

Island Vis was first populated back in pre-history by the Neolithic period. In the 4th century BC, the Greek tyrant of Syracuse, Dionysius the Elder, founded the colony Issa on the island. Later, it became an independent polis, and even minted its own money and established its individual colonies. The town of Vis is found in a secluded bay, and the island is one of Croatia's best kept secret tourist spots. Vis is a must visit for any discerning tourist seeking a quiet respite.
