Buje is a town situated in Istria, Croatia's westernmost peninsula.Buje was known as the "sentinel of Istria" for its hilltop site located 10km inland from the Adriatic Sea. It still commands an excellent panorama.HistoryBuje has a rich history; traces of life in the region date back to prehistoric times. The town developed from a Roman and Venetian settlement into a medieval town. Buje was part of the Republic of Venice from 1358 until 1797, and was part of unified Italy from 1918 to 1945. It was within the Socialist Republic of Croatia, part of communist Yugoslavia, from 1945 to 1991.A Baroque style church from the 16th century, built on the foundations of an ancient Roman temple, dominates the central square. The old city was protected with stone fortifications, part of which have been preserved to modern times. With its narrow streets and a central square, the old town is a fine example of Medieval architecture with strong Venetian Renaissance architecture influences, as in the rest of the region.After World War II Buje developed into an industrial, cultural, and economic center of this region of northwestern Yugoslavia.GeographyBuje has become a modern regional center, and outside of the old town center a modern city has sprung. Despite its development, the city has retained some features from its historical periods.
