Bale is a small stone town located between the hills Monleme, Sokol, Škvačota and Veli Majan, Mali Majan, Pižanovac, Paštrovič’s peak, Sv. Nedjelja, Brigonera and Mongrižeja. It is a town offering Istrian tradition and architecture. It has been inhabited since the Roman times, and was used to defend the trade route between the Empire in Pula. In the Middle Ages it became a small town surrounded by walls where you can find the Sorade-Bembo Palace.

You will rarely see a thief or a criminal running from the police in the street because they are almost no such occurrences.

        The only thing you should be careful about is when you are driving with a taxi make sure that the taxi driver turns on the taximeter, because they are obliged to do that but sometimes they “forget” and charge you more then they should.
