Welcome to the mushroom capital of Istria–Buzet!  It’s old town is perched high above the Mrna River valley

For those who love truffles, agro-tourism, wine and untouched nature, Buzet, the “city of truffles” is well worth a side trip from Rovinj, about 50km away. Pula is about 90km distant but each of these cities has bus connections to Buzet. The town itself lies in the very heart of the northern part of Croatian Istria on a 150-meter-high hill overlooking the Mirna River valley. The old town, or “stari grad” is more than 500 years old and served as a walled fortress that provided a spectacular overlook as well as security. The new part of the town is called Fontana and is surprisingly active. The first week of September is the town’s annual truffle festival including creation of a giant omelet is made with over 2000 eggs and $12,000 worth of truffles (about 10 kilos!). Despite its tiny size, just 6,000 inhabitants, a growing number of wine connoisseurs, truffle lovers and others looking for the off-the-beaten-track charm of interior Croatia are discovering Buzet. And it’s very close to the hilltop magic of Motuvun and just a bit further inland from Buzet is Pazin, with its famous castle. Just two more reasons why central Istria is such a marvelous find!
