Croatian islands have had a military past. During World War II when Tito held his headquarters on the island of Vis. After the war, Vis was turned into a defense bastion, and only opened for foreigners as late as in 1989. Today we toured a maze of tunnels on the Zagrebenje mountains on the southeast corner of the island, connecting a number gun positions.
There are also many other similar setups around the island. These gun positions are common. For other types of military relics, I've visited for instance, the abandoned missile base, the mountainside tunnels, or the underground submarine base. But I'm sure there's tons more!
