A town with a turbulent past, located in the hinterland of Rovinj, fourteen kilometers towards Pula. Even before the Romans, there was a prehistoric hillfort. Historical documents, remains of Roman buildings, bronze coins and other finds testify to the fact that Bale played the role of a Roman fortress. Bale still remains one of the most beautiful villages located on a hill, at an altitude of 140 meters, in Istria. Old, stone, medieval streets lined with houses from the 14th and 15th centuries meander in a circle around the hill, creating an urban landscape of enviable beauty. The most attractive for tourists are galleries, shops and taverns that give the city a relaxed, artistic atmosphere. They are close to Rovinj, which makes this place suitable for a simple day trip and a refreshing break from the busy coast. Near Bale, in Colone Bay, rich dinosaur fossils have been found that you can study closely at the Ulika Gallery in Bale City Hall.

As we walked along the beautiful cobbled streets of Bale, we saw ancient Venetian gothic-style buildings that were exquisite. My friends and I really enjoyed learning about ancient civilizations. We look forward to another visit.
