Marijan Buljat (born 12 September 1981 in Zadar) is a Croatian football player who plays as a wingback. His current club is Hajduk Split, since July 2008.

Born in Zadar and a product of the NK Zadar academy, Buljat moved soon after finishing his youth career to NK Rijeka. After a year and a half there he moved in January 2002 to the 2. Bundesliga side Greuther Fürth, signing a 2.5 year contract. After featuring in only a few friendlies for the first side and playing mostly for the Greuther Fürth amateur team in the Oberliga Bayern, he moved in January 2003 back to Croatia, to NK Osijek. After another one and half there, he was signed, in summer 2004, by Dinamo Zagreb. He has played since for the Croatian national team, being a backup player for the squad in 2006 FIFA World Cup as well. In January 2007 Buljat's left leg was broken by the Croatia national team striker Eduardo in training. In a cruel twist of irony Eduardo's own leg was broken by a tackle by Birmingham City's Martin Taylor in 2008. In July 2008 he was reported that he was transferred to biggest Dinamo rival Hajduk Split on a free transfer, signing a four year contract. After securing a first eleven spot in the 2008/2009 season, he was removed from the first team squad in late 2009 for refusing to sign a new contract with a wage cut. A new contract was signed 6 months later, and was set to feature in the first team again, but broke his right leg in training after featuring only in a single league match. He is set to return to the team after the 2010/11 winter break.
