A very special location

Unlike similar events in the region, DH Buzet takes place close to urban area. Buzet has an excellent geostrategic position, being located only 10 minutes from Slovenian and 30 minutes from Italian border. That’s surely one of the reasons such a big number of competitors and spectators come to DH Buzet.
4000 meters from the Slovenian border, 400 meters from the town center, 0 meters from the adrenaline.
