The island of Vir is one of those carefully kept secrets found all over the world. Once discovered, everyone keeps its existence to themselves. Vir truly offers the best of both worlds, as it is a proper island, yet connected to the mainland by a bridge. Its pleasant climate and the setting of a small Mediterranean town make it a favorite holiday destination. Besides the comforts of contemporary living, Vir will also enrich its visitors with a spirit of times past, which can be felt in the exploration of old ruins, churches and fortifications.
