Another one of Tito’s residences is located on the Vanga island, where it appears as though time had stopped and you can see the wine cellar, the Slovene room, and the Indonesian fisherman’s salon, as well as a photographic laboratory and a workshop from his time. You can find grape vines, tangerines, and other types of fruit on the island.

During Austro-Hungarian rule, this small island was a hydroplane station and a pilot training center, while today it is uninhabited and full of lush vegetation.  You can visit the island as a part of an all-day stay and swimming program. Shallow draft boats can dock on the island without prior notice and payment of fees.

Saint Jerolim Island

Popular diving site – Saint Jerolim island – is open to visitors and it is possible to dock there with your private boat or as part of organized tours from Fažana or Pula. The island was named after a church and a monastery that once dominated the island and was destroyed by the exploitation of stone.
