Buzet (the name Buzet is of Celtic origin: see Buzet-sur-Baïse and Celts; Italian: "Pinguente" from the Latin "Piquentum"; see List of Latin place names in the Balkans) is a town in Istria, Croatia, population 6,059 (2001).

Already at the time of Venetian rule Buzet supplied military stations and the local population with potable water. Today the region of Buze-stina is the central area of the future Native Park of Istria. Beautiful, almost intact nature and an abundance of cultural and historical monuments, together with wholesome, home-made food (especially wide known funges - truffles), exquisite local wines, folklore (ancient music playing - lamentations and dances - balun, legends of citadels) and pearls of small towns on conically shaped hills (Roc, Hum, Vrh and Sovinjak) are attracting tourists every year.
