If we go back to the past, Buje was known as the "Guard of Istria" thanks to its strategic position - it is located at 222 meters above sea level. From that ancient past, there are many cultural and historical sights, especially it's worth mentioning a church of St. Servul who is also the guardian of this place. Right next to the church of St. Servul is a belfry with a stunning view of parts of Croatia, Slovenia, Austria and Italy.
You have to visit the church of St. Mary Mercy with a bell tower and a fresco, a tower of St. Martin, the preserved part of Venetian walls and an ethnographic museum with handicrafts of folk culture.

You can spend your time on various water attractions at Aquapark Istralandia or at the wine marathon Wine Run - Parenzana Magic. For all adrenaline fans, there is an adrenaline jeep safari that drives through the "wilderness" of Istria.
You can enjoy a walk through the beautiful, rich olive groves and vineyards or laze in Kanegra on a pebble beach in the shade of pine trees.
In September, during the Grape Festival, the evenings in Buje are full of life, and all visitors have the opportunity to participate in various games, enjoy delicacies, dance and music.
