The secret military past of the Vis island

There are over 30 different military objects scattered across the island, including fortresses, military subways and labyrinths of tunnels. One of the most attractive ones is the missile base at Stupišće point near Komiža. It was a huge base for land-sea missiles with impressive tunnel and bunker complex to be on alert in case of invasion.

After World War II, Vis became a military base with strictly controlled access, so the beauty of the island has remained relatively intact. It was only in the summer of 1989 that the island opened to foreign visitors.

Goolets organizes this military tour with Land Rover jeeps where each vehicle has its own local tour guide. You will see some of the many abandoned military sites on Vis, hear some incredible stories and enjoy the amazing panoramic view.
