The Streets of Vis, Croatia

By Sneaky


On a recent sailing trip we did in Croatia, we also spent a night and the following morning in the town of Vis on Vis island.

The whole island has almost 4.000 inhabitants and lies the farthest from the coast of all inhabited Croatian islands.
In the time of Yugoslavia it was one of the countries main naval bases and only partly accessible to public.
During World War II it was heavily mined and still in 2008 34 mines were cleared from the island.

Vis is a picturesque Mediterranean little town, offering many opportunities for a good photo or two. So I took the chance and went on a slow stroll through the narrow, stone cobbled streets. These are a few of many nice ones I took in a quarter of an hour.


The first one is taken from the boat moored on the seafront of Vis. A Franciscan monastery looked really nice across the bay but I unfortunately ran out of time to take a closer look.

The other two photos are from one of many narrow streets. I hope you like them.


For those of you in doubt about the object on that last photo. It has obviously seen better days but it is still a door knocker.
