The farthest island of middle Dalmatia is Vis, famous for its clear sea and protected underwater world, rich in sunken ships and miraculous flora and fauna. Due to a large number of hidden bays, oases of peace which are hard to reach, it is a real paradise for sailors.
Vis is a historical monument in its entirety because of the many preserved facilities (remnants of the Antique town of Issa, Roman spa, Issa necropolis, summer houses, churches, Tito's cave).
The town of Vis, on the northern side of the island, is located in a wide peaceful bay, where sailors gladly drop anchor. This is exactly where Dalmatia's most important town, the Greek colony of Issa, was situated in 4th century B.C. Vis is also known for its gastronomic delicacies - the Vis anchovy scone (viška pogača) and Vis bread (viški hlib), a delicacy dating back to Antique times and made of figs.
