The renowned British newspaper The Telegraph has published an article titled ''Europe's 17 Best Secret Islands'' and selected the 17 most beautiful and less known islands in Europe. The Croatian islands of Vis and Solta have also found their place of The Telegraph's list.
Check out what the popular newspaper wrote about Solta and Vis:
''Partly because of its ruggedness and partly because of its proximity to Split, which means tourists often overlook it in favour of better-known islands slightly further away, Solta (12 miles by two), in the central Dalmatian archipelago, remains blissfully unspoilt and is still home to a thriving fishing community plus working vineyards and olive groves''.
''An island fit for a Bond villain'', reckons Telegraph Travel's Adrian Bridge. ''I may have been driving a 50cc scooter rather than a gadget-enhanced Aston Martin but it was the theme tune to the 007 films that raced to mind as I rounded the corner of the spectacularly scenic road that winds its way through the northern extremity of the Croatian island of Vis. It was impossible not to feel that somewhere deep within that crevice the villainous Stavro Blofeld still had a lair and that at any moment I would hear the immortal words: ''I've been expecting you, Mr Bond''.
