Buzet claims a flourishing local economy and as a result, modern dwellings encroach on the traditional settlement at the foot of the hill. But at the top of the hill, tightly-crammed old houses and ancient walls await. On the far side of the town, the views of the countryside below are uninterrupted by modern development. Sights to see include its old well, a winery and the town's music and food festivals. The local celebration of truffles Buzetska Subotina is one of the best.
