Ferry from Split

by TimPage

Will the Split to Vis ferry and catamaran run on 15th August? I understand that this is a bank holiday

Re: Ferry from Split

by diocletianvs

August 15 is one of those "mad weekends" on Croatian roads and ferries.
Not only the ferries will sail as usual, there might even be extra departures out of the regular timetable.
So, don't worry.

Travel Tips for Vis

Klapa Music

by mircaskirca

One of the real delights of Croatia's Dalmatian coast is its Klapa music. The world klapa translates as "a group of people" and traces its roots to choral singing. Klapa is a cappella music, occasionaly it is possible to add a gentle guitar and mandolin (instrument similar to tamburitza). It is usually composed of up to a dozen male singers and in recent times, female vocal groups have been also quite popular.

The themes are love, homeland, the sea and wine. Main elements of the music are harmony and melody. Klapa songs reflect Dalmatia's natural beauty, evoking the sea and sun. The sweet melodies and lush harmonies have universal appeal, most people are smitten on first hearing.

Klapa tradition is still very much alive. If you want to experience it, ask in the the local restaurant. In July and August, there are summer festivals with plenty of klapa. You can get the programme of the envents in the local tourist office. Even if you are in a small town, it is not unusual to hear klapa music on the streets in the evening. Many young people from Dalmatia treasure klapa and sing it regularly when going out eating and drinking. Having a group of klapa singers around the table with some red wine... It's truly unforgattable experience!!

Here is the concert version of famous Klapa Intrade with the beautiful song Croatio iz duse te ljubin - Croatia, I love you from all my heart :)

Vis a Vis & Merged

by KristaB

Town Vis consists of two settlements - village Luka (port) and village Kut (corner), located arround the large bay. The ancient Issa was located near Luka, on the hillside towards monastery and the church of St. Jurij on Pirovo peninsula.

A lovely walk from one end to another is full of small interesting sights, don't forget to wander away into side streets.
Window shutters winking, dancing curtains, gentle flowers, echoing voices.

The main promenade fills with boats in the afternoon. Cacophony of languages blending together for thousands of years.
Encounters crisscrossing like boat ropes.

Nika Adventure Tours

by mircaskirca

An excursion to Bisevo island and visiting of the famous Blue Cave is certainly "a must thing to do" while you are on Vis. So one evening I went to the main travel agency as I wanted to book for the next morning. To my great disappointment, they told me everything was booked already. I did not expect this could happend off-season. By accident I came across Nika Adventure Tours and later realized how I was actually lucky. While the other boat to Bisevo was packed, we were only two passengers in a big and comfortable boat. And guess what? It was even cheaper! The owner, captain Darko, was really nice; he did everything to please us and make our excursion the unforgettable adventure.

Nika Adventure Tours was launched only a year ago and it's the youngest travel agency on the island. It specializes in excursions according to passengers' wishes and it's very convinient for those who want more than conventional tourism can offer. You can have a closer look at:

Peka - A Roasting Technique

by mircaskirca

Peka technique (meaning under the bell) is actually used on most Dalmatian islands, it's kind of tradition. But be aware that it takes quite a long time untill the food is done so it's avisable to order it in advance.

For cooking they use a stone construction housing a wood-fired oven where they put a pan with the ingredients. Peka is a cast-iron dome, placed over coals, which they use to slow-roast octopus (or lamb, kid). It comes with potatoes, optionally carrot is added. Octopus gets very tender, stickily caramelised and the taste is really unique!

Viska Pogaca (Salt Fish Cake)

by mircaskirca

Apart from rich cultural history and unique natural beauties, Vis is characterised by the natural healthy nutrition - simplicity and wealth of tastes, resulting from richness of nature on the island.

One of the specialities that every visitor of Vis island has to taste, is Viska pogaca (salt fish cake), a round unleavened flat cake, similar to pizza. I asked Nina about the best place to taste this culinary delight, and she replied that she was just going to make it herself. Ah, she was so wonderful! Each day she had another surprise for her guests!

The recipe may vary from person to person, but hers goes like this:

1 kg of soft flour
30-40 dkg tomatoes
1 onion
10 salt pilchards
capers and olives
leaven
1 spoonful of salt
2 spoonful of olive oil

Make soft pastry from flour, salt, oil and leaven. Leave it to grow, then divide it into two equal pieces, 2 cm thick. Warm cut onion on oil and add salt fish, capers, olives and tomatoes cut in small pieces. The prepared mixture put onto pastry, cover with the other part of pastry and leave it to grow. Spray with oil and bake it at 200C for 30-40 minutes.

A glass of red wine from the island will be certainly the best supplement to your meal!

Bon appetite!! :)
