Culture

You can enjoy your evenings with numerous cultural events especially abundant and diverse in the summer. You can listen to traditional Dalmatian acapella choirs or dance the night away on pop concerts; see performances of local amateur theaters or by guest actors; and local celebrations that just might unexpectedly get you pulled up on stage, as well; watch movies at the legendary open-air summer cinema; or, perhaps, join an art colony, all in the breathtaking specific island surroundings.

Gastronomy

The cuisine of the Island of Vis is very typically Dalmatian. Small family-run restaurants and taverns offer indigenous dishes prepared from traditional recipes spiced up with a lot of culinary expertise and love. Fresh fish, fruits of the sea, black cuttlefish risotto, grouper brodetto (stew), prosciutto, aged sheep milk cheese and magically distinctive colorful aromatic wines are all a reflection of the power and fragrance of this sun-soaked island during the summertime and all year round. The centuries-old olive groves full of fruits and lovely steep vineyards that yield amazingly delicious grapes are all over the island in whatever direction you decide to go. The fruits of the Island of Vis are always at your fingertips. The Vis Pogača (bread-like pie) is something you won’t want to miss tasting – a traditional local delicacy desirable at dinner tables of both laborers and nobles from Croatia and Italy.

Sport and nature

The Vis Regatta and the Vis Swimming Marathon are the two main annual sporting events. Along Vis beaches you locals enjoy playing water polo and will happily invite you to join them and explain the rules in their own characteristically comical, clumsy, and charming way. Vis is also a popular adrenaline sport destination for mountain biking, sailing, freediving, and sports fishing. However, if tranquility is more your thing, there is not a more stunning place for long walks and one of the most beautiful sunsets in the Mediterranean.
