On Croatia’s Istrian peninsula lies the old village of Bale. Surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, Bale offers a picturesque setting for innovators.
In the center of the village, the 500-year-old Soardo-Bembo Palace has recently been renovated. It forms the epicenter of a small community filled with jazzy cafes, artists, and craftspeople.
The environment is clean, and the village is serviced by bus lines that connect to the nearby city of Pula, the regional economic hub.
For entrepreneurs looking to launch a business in a quieter neighborhood, it may be an attractive option.
