Why visit Vrboska?
On both sides of a long narrow bay is located the smallest town on the island, called Vrboska, whose Vela and Mola bonda (sides) are connected by a small stone bridge. That’s why it carries the name “Mala Venecija” (Little Venice). Surrounded by thick pine forests, with its small bridges, paved streets, Renaissance and Gothic style houses on both sides of the bay together with a very small island within the bay is a sight that will leave few indifferent. The reflection of stone houses in the water and calmly anchored fishing boats bathing in the sun give this place a special charm and intimate warmth. Accommodation possibilities in Vrboska are numerous, including apartments, rooms, villas, quality hotels and camping sites. Vrboska is renowned as the biggest fishing village on the island, to which testifies the rich collection at the Ribarski muzej (Fishing Museum). The old fishing village is today a tourist city which with its beauty, countless landmarks and calmness which radiates from every corner will capture every visitor. Countless art items are protected in the Church Fortress and the church of St. Lawrence. Vrboska is a real treat to all lovers of cultural landmarks and is definitely an unavoidable destination in viewing the cultural heritage of the island. If you want to experience the charm of a typical small Dalmatian city and enjoy the peace far away from the city crowds visit Vrboska and surrender yourself to the charming peaceful beauty.
