Buzet, a town in the northern part of central Istria, located on a hill in the Mirna river valley, below Cicarija Mountain. Regional roads connect the town with the eastern and western coasts of Istria. Economy is based on farming, metal-working industry and wood-processing. A railway station is located in the immediate vicinity of the town.
Already at the time of Venetian rule Buzet supplied military stations and the local population with potable water. Today the region of Buze-stina is the central area of the future Native Park of Istria. Exceptionally beautiful, almost intact nature and an abundance of cultural and historical monuments, together with wholesome, home-made food, exquisite local wines, folklore and pearls of small towns on conically shaped hills (Roc, Hum, Vrh and Sovinjak) are a real promised land for peaceful rest.
The slopes of Cicarija feature a number of trails (access by car), where one can see wild animals. Thermal springs and a high quality sparkling wine bear witness to primordial beauty of this region. Inns in nearby Vrh offer the famous speciality - fuzi (kind of pasta) with truffles.
Many entertainment programs and events take place round the year: contest of harmony-singing groups of Istria and Kvarner (28th of March); music festival The Singing Buzestina (in April, Buzet - Roc - Sovinjak - Vrh); Buzet Days, including also a motor-car race (5th-7th of September).
