Truffle in Buzet - the city of truffles

The forest surrounding Buzet is home to a buried treasure. The truffle, this gastronomic giant, starts its big party in September. Spend Truffle Days in the company of giants.

In 1999, Buzet was named the city of truffles in the truffle zone that extends over three administrative areas: the city of Buzet, the municipality of Oprtalj, the municipality of Motovun. At the center of these three administrative areas is the Motovun Forest, a habitat for the Istrian white truffle (tuber magnatum), an expensive tuber whose value is measured in grams. It has a distinctive fragrance, not a very noticeable appearance, but the taste is exquisite. Aside from white truffles, the area is also rich in other types of black truffle (Tuber Aestivum Vitt, Tuber ubicatum, Tuber melanu sporum).

About truffle

Truffle is underground tuberous fungus considered to be the culmination of gastronomy. It grows in the heart of Istria, in a moist and gray soil of the forests near Buzet with the Mirna River running through it. This hidden treasure can be found through specially trained dogs.

The area where truffles can be found is located southwest of Buzet and Lanišće all the way to the Raša River in the Labin area and in the southern area to Pazin.

In the valley of the River Mirna, one will find the internationally acclaimed white truffles that ripen in early autumn, as well as black truffles that can be found in both winter and summer.
