Buje Travel Guide

buje istria croatia raod trip travel guide

Like many Croatian cities, Buje has a long history dating back to the Bronze Age. Valued for its panoramic views, surrounding vineyards, and lush olive groves dotting its hillside, the town was a Roman settlement, then a medieval Venetian city, remaining under Italian rule from 1918 to 1945. An important border crossing from Italy and Slovenia, Buje has held a position of importance in government and economy for centuries. Our Lady of Mercy Baroque era church, and the Ethnographic Museum are highlights, but Buje is the start point for many wine road tours, visiting 23 winemakers along the route. Similarly, olive oil road tours encourage sampling produce from many producers in the Buje area.
