    Was on holiday in Split and heard the island of Vis was nearby with plenty of abandoned military stuff so thought it would be worth checking out!

    There are apparently many other similar sites on the island, including a fairly untouched naval command bunker, but we didn't have much time and only a basic map so we only managed to see the two sites here plus a few locked magazines, old equipment hardstandings etc. If you're able to go here I'd highly recommend renting a car or moped and really exploring, there's underground military stuff everywhere!

    History from Wikipedia:

    First the submarine pen - although abandoned it's easy to get to, especially with a boat, so there were plenty of tourists there. A few people jumped off the top into the water below.

    There isn't much inside so I would guess that this was mostly used for simply hiding a submarine, rather than resupply or maintenance - the site consists only of the large submarine tunnel plus 1 pedestrian tunnel.

    Onto the gun battery - this was inside a hill on a peninsula, and consisted of a long entry tunnel, then another long tunnel perpendicular to this, with some large rooms (magazines?) and tunnels leading out to the emplacements in the cliff. Apparently a similar site elsewhere on the island has the guns in situ.

    Nearby was this car-sized tunnel leading to 2 large rooms, I assume this was a magazine for the battery.
