The town of Vis is located in a large and naturally protected bay (Bay St. George) on the northeastern side of the island Vis, facing the island of Hvar and Dalmatian mainland. Redundant port is located in the most indented southwestern part of the bay, which is a small island and peninsula Host Prirovo protected from the effects of the high seas. Within the bay there are small areas of anchorages on Angle and Stonca. Vis is quite possibly the oldest town in Croatia, which has existed for 2400 years. It has the remains of the ancient city of Issa (thermae, necropolis, theater, parts of the port), rich sacral heritage (Parish Church of Our Lady of Spilica, the Church of St. Cyprian and St. Spirit, the Franciscan monastery on the peninsula Prirovo, Shrine of the Assumption in Podselje – Velo Selo)
homes of royalty, works from various historical periods (Venice, England, Austria-Hungary).
