The Dalmatia region

With its distinctive Mediterranean charm, the town offers many restaurants and bars all with excellent local dishes and wines. Savour the delights of local fresh fish from the fish market, or the fruit and vegetable market next door. Just walking through the town, with its many ancient and historic features and monuments, is a delight that makes a vacation in Vis a real pleasure.

The beach is within easy walking distance, or you can take time out to explore the island's more remote beaches and bays as well as local villages with their historic fortresses and villas.

History:
In the 4th century BC, the greeks founded the colony Issa on the island. Later, it became an independent city-state, and even minted its own money and founded its own colonies elsewhere. In the first century BC, the island was held by the Liburnians. Its importance in the region ended with the first Illyro-Roman war (29-219 BC). Having sided with Pompeus during the period of civil struggles in Rome, became an "oppidum civium Romanorum" in 47 BC.The island then passed, for several centuries, under the rule of the Republic of Venice, until 1797. During this time large settlements developed on the coast (Comisa, now Komiža and Lissa, now Vis).
The Venetian influence is still recognizable in architecture, and many words In the local Croatian dialect are Venetian in origin.

After the short-lived Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy, with Italian as the official language, it passed under the rule of Austrian Empire. It maintained its Italian name of Lissa. At the end of World War I, it passed under Italian rule in the period 1918 and 1921, according to the Treaty of London, and then was ceded to Yugoslavia following the Treaty of Rapallo.

The sea to the north of the island was the stage of two battles:

- in 1811, a small Royal Navy fleet defeated a larger French fleet.
- in 1866, the Austrian fleet, under Admiral Tegetthoff, defeated the Italian fleet, under Admiral Persano.

Vis was at one point the main hideout of Josip Broz Tito, the leader of the Yugoslav resistance movement. It was occupied by Yugoslavian partisans under the command of Tito and by a British flotilla in 1941 and 1943. At the end of World War II the island returned to Yugoslavia. In 1991 it became part of independent Croatia. During the war the island was mined. After Croatia became independent, its navy did not reclaim most of the facilities, and the many abandoned buildings are being used for civilian purposes.
Vis was in 1995 opend for tourism.
