WHY DID THE GREEKS, ROMANS, BYZANTINES, SLAVS, VENETIANS, AUSTRIANS, FRENCH AND BRITISH ALL CONTROL VIS AT DIFFERENT TIMES?

Vis was strategically significant in the Adriatic and was fought over in many naval battles.

The Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Slavs, Venetians, Austrians, French and British have all controlled Vis at different times. Major naval battles took place in 1811 when the British defeated the French and in 1866 when Austrian forces trounced Italy. During the Second World War the island was at different times under the control of Tito's partisans and played the important role of the British Military Mission Headquarters. After the war Vis became a military base to which access was strictly controlled and it was only in summer 1989 that the island opened to foreign visitors.
