On the streaked slopes of the Učka Mountain and just an hour’s drive away from Bale, protrudes the ancient town of Veprinac. The name of this small town is usually associated with the butcher's-broom that found its home here. Encounter the town’s rich history, whilst exploring the remains of its interesting frescoes in detail, or climb the stone steps to the parish church of St. Mark from where your view reaches the blueness of the Kvarner Bay with Opatija on one side, and the magnificent Učka Mountain in the hinterland.
