The attractive, well-dressed crowd included Euros who locals, vacation in Vis, and representatives of the Croatian Navy. I’m not frequently surrounded by a great number of medals on so many epaulettes. Fort George was created by the British Royal Navy for its strategic position in the Adriatic Sea in 1813. The site has seen more than its fair share
throughout history — Austrians, Napoleon — but had lately been left. European creators Erik Biorklund and William Wenkel found Fort George on a sail along the Dalmation coast, fell in love, and made it their first property-based endeavor. They worked with Croatian authorities on the renovation and contained a museum with paintings and military paraphernalia. But this is clearly a location to bash in the open air. And, good god, what a setting. Under the trees, with astonishing views from every perspective, on a promontory.
