  • Tito's Caves

    This is a socialist shrine of sorts for the island of Vis and possibly for the old Yugoslavia. Supposedly this is one of the locations that Marshal Tito directed the war in 1944. Apparently it was once quite a draw with the tourist before it was clear how severe Tito’s crimes were and the disintegration of Yugoslavia. We were told by locals and a visiting agitator from Split (his self-given title) that apparently Tito was only at this location for a matter of weeks.

    This is definitely worth a stop on the way to the top of Mt. Hum. It seems that some restoration work has gone into the site recently. While there are not any real caves (that we could find) there are some nice terraces and text (in Croatian) around the site.

  • Mount Hum - Elevation 587 meters

    High above Komiza to the south is the peak of Mount Hum accessible from the old road to the south or from a hiking trail that is purported to start behind the Benedictine Monastery.

    High atop the hill you will find amazing views down to Komiza, out to Vis Bay, Hvar and Lastovo islands and far off to Split and the mainland.
