Third day program, September 16, 2011
Tour to the Island of Vis


Vis (Ital. Lissa and Old Greek Issa) is a protruding Croatian island in the Adriatic Sea. It is situated 45 km away from land. Its area is 90.3 km2 and total length of coastline 77 km. Numerous smaller islands can be found around Vis (Biševo, Budihovac, Brusnik, Jabuka, Ravnik, Svetac, etc.). Larger settlements on the Island of Vis include Vis and Komiža.

The Croatian Navy ship is going to depart from the Lora military harbour in Split at 8 a.m. Lora is a special purpose harbour and the headquarters of Croatian Navy.

The sailing is going to last approximately three and a half hour. Participants are going to be able to refresh themselves with a glass of wine or juice. Arrival to the Vis harbour is expected at around 12 a.m.

Following a transport by bus, we are going to walk about 500 m to the Georg fortress. After brief sightseeing, we are going to take the bus again to the Baterija fortress, where we are going to stay for about half an hour. We are then going to have lunch in Kut (Eastern part of the city).

At 3 p.m., we are going to take the bus along the old road (20 km) to Komiža. We are going to visit the church of St. Nicholas (Muster) with remains of the Benedictine monastery and the Museum of Fishing. At around 5:30 p.m., we are going to return via the new road (10 km) to Vis, with a brief stay in the Lipanović wine cellar (, where we are going to taste home made wine (Vugava, Plavac mali, ...), maybe even brandy (herb brandy, travarica, kadulja, koromač, ...).

We are going to depart from the Vis harbour at 8 p.m. and return to the Lora harbour around 11:30 p.m.
