An astonishing historic venue that offers

food, drink, art and music.


Fort George has set out to establish itself as a cultural hub in the Adriatic acting as a focal point for people to meet and experience its history, culture and unique entertainment. Situated on the island of Vis, Croatia, Fort George was built by the British Navy in 1813 as part of their efforts to wrest control of the Adriatic from Napoleon. Standing on a high promontory with a commanding and breathtaking view of the island, the fort is currently undergoing the second phase of restoration to become a high-end, multi-purpose venue.

Unique experience provider within travel, culture and leisure.

European Travel Ventures was formed in 2008 as the result of a very successful sailing holiday! The company is a reflection of the founders’ passion for adventure and their curiosity to discover new cultures and places.

The sailing holiday became known as The Yacht Week and has since evolved from solely yachting adventures into multiple recreational initiatives such as The Ski Week, Yachts and Friends and Fort George.
