   organize the trip through Istria

Ages ago, old Romans used to call Istria the royal pantry. True gourmands say that Istria hasn't lost anything of that fortune.

Cuisine of the continental Istria is based on the healthy fruits of the rich soil, made on olive oil, spiced with native spices, with not many ingredients, but with a lot of love and imagination.

Pršut, sir i vino u konobiWhat should be tasted is an Istrian prosciutto, a sheep cheese, Istrian manestra (soup), fuzi (pasta) with homegrown chicken or gniochi with a venison sos, sauerkraut, sausages, scrambled eggs with asparagus or mushrooms, lasagne with Istrian truffles, rabbit roasted under the pan. And what comes along with all of this tasty food are well known wines of the Buzet region: malvazija, teran, merlot, cabernet...

And at the end we recommend homemade Istrian cookies - krostule, fritule ... and a glass of homemade brandy or a glass of biska, which is a characteristic, and very healthy, drink of the Buzet region.

In the heart of Istria, in the Buzet region, unique values and beauties of the human creations have been saved through centuries. The very special place, among all of the beauties, belongs to the churches. Some of them are even 1000 years old. But no metter what their age is, all of them are equally "selfish" when it comes to their treasure - valuable liturgic tools, artworks...

In the heart of Istria, in the Buzet region, unique values and beauties of the human creations have been saved through centuries. The very special place, among all of the beauties, belongs to the churches. Some of them are even 1000 years old. But no metter what their age is, all of them are equally "selfish" when it comes to their treasure - valuable liturgic tools, artworks...

Every church, even the simpliest one, owns its hidden beauty and its story. If you wish, they will tell you their story gladly.

If you decide to meet this uniqueness, the best hosts and guides will be the local priests. Look for this dear and hospitable people and you'll get a bunch of informations and the keys of most of the churches.

Agriculture In The Buzet Town District

The district of Buzet stretches across an area of 15.500 hectares in the central Istria, 9.000 hectares of which are considered agricultural and 5.500 hectares fertile area.

Certain specific features of the region are determined by its geographical situation. In terms of climate the area is influen-ced by Continental (east-northeast-north) and Mediterranean (west-southwest) types of climate. Although with no direct contact with the sea, the influence of Mediterranean climate is present deep in the continent owing to natural corridors created by the Mirna river valley and its tributaries where conditions are met for growing of some typical Mediterranean crops. On the other hand, the Ucka and Cicarija range directly determine the climate and plants of the eastern and north-east part of the region.

The relief is characterized by hills intersected by waters and narrow valleys alongside that also create a series of micro-locality specific features. The wind (specifically the northeasterly wind Bora) must be pointed out as an important factor in certain agricultural branches, particularly in the period from October to April, when its force may cause considerable damage to field crops. Generally speaking, the region is abundant in precipitation (avers 1.000 mm). However, the uneven occurence causes dry summer periods.

NuglaIn the east-west direction the Buzet region may be divided into several agricultural zones. The Roc area is situated in the eastern part of the town, rising towards the Ucka mountain. Stock-breeding (mainly the "montafon" cows) is traditionally the main characteristic of the area owing to abundant pasture-grounds and meadows, often of high quality, and collateral forage crops industry and tillage. Small vineyards occur in scarce naturally protected positions, however, this area being at the margin of the grape-growing zone.

Further to the west there lies the town of Buzet. Along the Mirna and its tributaries there are the most fertile arable areas (Sv. Ivan, Strped, Skuljari, Opatija) where maize, barley, wheat, potatoes, animal beet, lucerne, pumpkins etc. are grown. The valleys are highly fertile owing to river wash and the nearby hills erosion, favoured by much more temperated summer dryness due to the Mirna and numerous streams flowing laterally through the ground as well as to irrigation facilities. Stock-breeding is here accompanied by farming whereas growing of other crops (fruit, grape) is limited by severe late frosts.

VinogradiFollowing the Buzet-Pazin road from the Mirna in the Svi Sveti direction the grape-growing zone is approached, filled up with olive-groves, farming crops and market-gardens. The very fields along the left side of the road (looking from Buzet) represent the boundary between the cold Hum area and the milder area of the Prodani, Krusvari, Pasutici villages... and on to the south-west (Juradi) and west (Sv. Donat, Sovinjsko polje, Sovinjska brda, Sovinjak...Klarici, Vrh, Barusici, Marcenegla, Paladini ) down tw'fhe small Botonega river lake. Grape-growing dominates the area which is best represented by Istrian malmsey, followed by the reran, white muscat, and merlot sorts, and some "ancient" sorts with local names of garganija, usnjavina, paga-debito... and new sorts chardoney and sauvignon introduced recently. Olive-groves must not be omitted as a feature of the landscape. Notwithstanding the fact that approximately every ten years they are devastated by severe colds, they are still there and young olive-groves are added as well. Apart from ancient oil works or "toklarija", predominantly representing objects of cultural and historical value, new modern oil works are constructed to offer better oil production and processing opportunities to oil producers.
As the surface is undulating and therefore ex-posed to summer dry periods, farming crops are small in quantity but rich in quality, whereas market-gardening is just in development. Here too, traditional stock-breeding of cows is present because of milk production as well as for dung used mostly in grape-growing. Pasture-grounds and meadows are small, yet cows may be found in every cowshed.

VoękaThe rising ground by the other river side is characterized by similar features Mali Mlun, Veli Mlun, and further to the north Trkusi and 5alez). This description has not encompassed the area where villages Abrami, Seljaci, Perci, and Crnica are situated. This wind pro-tected area, particularly by the water sources, offer good opportunities for fruit and vegetables growing but has been still under-utilized.

On one hand the Buzet region may be considered agricultural, and on the other it is not. Namely, it is true that each household, regardless of its members' out-employments, is engaged in tillage with its own basic machinery. However, speaking in terms of production surpluses intended for the market, there is no agri cultural production there, milk being the only product delivered to the market, and even so its producers are not quite satisfied.

In terms of statistics the Buzet region comprises approximately 250 hectares of vineyards (approx. 2000 tons of grapes), 15.000 of olive trees (approx. 70 t of olives yearly), 700 dairy cows (yearly market surplus of approx. 1.150.000 1 of milk), 150 hectares of wheat fields (approx. 420 t of wheat yearly), 120 hectares of barley fields (approx. 360 t of barley yearly), 280 hectares of maize fields (approx. 1120 t of maize yearly).

There are several agricultural organizations operating in the region. The leading one is "Agroprodukt" of Buzet engaged in a series of agriculture-related activities, such as: mediation in milk purchase for the Rijeka dairy-plant "Rijecka mljekara", grape-growing, tillage, stock-breeding (cows, sheep...), meat processing and trading.
The "Istra genetic centre" is another large organization with its potentials yet to give their first outstanding results (huge objects on the Cicarija). This centre is expected in future to become a "nursery" for quality cattle (sheep, goat) for Croatia and even for a wider area. It is expected in the first place to influence significantly the goat and sheep-breeding in Istria, which seems to be facing the re-opening of the market after the crisis experienced in the last several decades.

TartufiFinally, let us mention truffles, which are not directly related to agriculture but have made the Buzet region particularly famous. This sort of mushrooms growing under ground is extremely important for local inhabitants as a significant source of additional profit, representing the most valuable export product of the region.

Summarizing the presented facts, it may be concluded that there seem to be quite bright prospects for agriculture in the Buzet region, particularly in more precisely determined market con-ditions and demand. Tourists of a more demanding class should become major consumers of local products, as indigenous and quality products when offered fresh to guests lacking variety are certainly very interesting and promising in terms of profit-making.
