Apartmani na ostrvu Vir
Island Vir, Croatia
The first historical records of Vir reach back to 1069 relating to Charter of the Croatian King Petar Krešimir IV. In this document, better-known as Mare Nostrum Dalmaticum, the island of Vir was named „Ueru“ and „Veru“ for which the historians presume its old -Mediterranean origin meaning „pasture“.
Thera are more than seven thousand resort-houses on Vir today. If meausered by the number of its guests in the summer months, Vir became a tourist place of many contrasts, so that some people call it thance „The island of Contrasts“. Nature at its purity can be seen on Vir, from pasture glades to magnificent pine-woods and other Mediterranean vegetation, cultivated vineyards, fields and gardens, the intact meadowlands, valleys down to the karstic hills slightly above one hundred meters, arranged in a chain from the south-west to the north-west of the island, from sandy to rocky beaches, from leveled to steep shores, from old Mediterranean houses to modern luxurious villas, from stony paths and macadam to asphalt roads, from serene ancient places to lively streets bursting with night-life, from crowded beaches to secluded bays.
