Komiža

Komiža, one of the most beautiful diving destinations promoted by Veljano himself, is located in the bay on the west coast on the Island of Vis, and makes part of one of the most beautiful archipelagos in the Adriatic, containing a number of islands, islets, and cliffs, such as Palagruža, Biševo, Sveti Andija-Svetac, Brusnik, and Jabuka, among which Brusnik and Jabuka stand out as the only volcanic islands in the Adriatic Sea. This small fishing town will captivate you with its charm, rich cultural history, and, naturally, superb food. Among a number of local specialties, the so-called “komiška pogaca” deserves a particular mention. You can also visit the Fishing Museum housed in Komuna, a Renaissance fortress dating back to the 16th century, as well as numerous churches, among which Muster – St. Nicholas’s Church, dominating a hill above Komiža and protecting fishermen and seafarers from far above, is certainly the most memorable.
