Welcome to Buzet


The old town is quiet but charming, with stone buildings in various stages of decay and restoration, and cobblestone streets nearly deserted (most of Buzet’s residents resettled at the foot of the hill in the unbecoming new part of town long ago). Enjoy a wander around the maze of narrow streets and squares, with sights all well signposted in English.
