I had read about this "smallest town" online while doing travel research for our trip, but it never made it on our formal agenda. So, driving through Istria, we came upon the road sign and I convinced my husband and the other couple with us to take the twisty, turny drive up to medieval Hum. Turns out, it was one... More

Very small, old cute town. There are also amazing views of the surrounding hills. They have perhaps too many shops (about 5 I would guess) for such a small town, but there were fairly low key and each was very generous in giving out free samples. The town touts itself for its local Mistletoe brandy, which we enjoyed. It is... More

Put some good time aside to wander the narrow streets of this charming historical gem. Browse in the shops and, if you are not on a walking holiday (we were!) buy local produce. There is a lady at the entrance to the town deep frying local doughnuts - eat at least one of these!

We didn't plan to visit Hum, but for sure feel happy we finally decided to go. It is a unique experience, everything looks like time stopped a long time ago. A great experience in the world's smallest city! Also, I would recommend entering the little shop. It gives you a chance to buy and taste local alcohol (teranino) which is... More

It's a small quaint Town that doesn't take you very long to explore. Just a few photos and a short walk around the place. You pay a few kunas for parking and can take your time around the 'Town'. Probably a 30 min to 1 hour exploration is sufficient.

It was a good walk from Buzet to get there but well worth the trouble. A romantic hideaway place with an excellent kaonga ( a traditional restaurant) to sit for lunch and admire the views of the town while eating the most delicious home-made sandwiches. The souvenir shop and and church are worth a visit as you explore the windy... More

The truffle brandy and mistletoe brandy for which the town are known are a must. Stop in the little local shop (rather than the more advertised Aura shop) for a true authentic experience.

Once you get there it's a 10 kuna car entry to the town. It was built from stones leftover from the towns near the Mirna bridge. It has a mayor and 27 residents. It has a church ,a clock tower ,some houses and souvenir shops and a restaurant. It's worth s couple of hours of your day to visit.
