Hum

Hum in Croatia is known as the smallest town in the world, which is why it is one of the most attractive Istrian excursionist destinations.

Hum is located near Roč, deep in the hinterland of the Istrian peninsula. These two towns are connected with a joint history and culture, and now with the Glagolitic Alley. Hum’s history starts in the earl medieval age, and the fact that the town is completely surrounded with old walls and that there was not much construction outside of them is especially interesting. Thanks to such settlement structure, one can rightfully claim that the entire Hum is actually a monument. Due to its specificities, the town is truly unique and interesting to history and culture explorers, and the area around Hum is especially attractive to nature lovers. Thick forests, meadows and hills are favourable for long walks and short family excursions. Thanks to the proximity of Buzet, also known as the “town of truffles”, due to favourable conditions that favour the growth of this aromatic mushroom, an excursion to Hum should be ended with a visit to one of the agricultural tourisms. Visit Hum in Istria and explore the smallest town in the world!
