There's nothing ho-hum about holidays in Hum!
Hum is the world’s smallest town and prides itself in being a holder of this status in the Guinness Book of World Records. It is the smallest town in Istria, Croatia and is centrally located. It is easily accessible from Roc by road. Situated on a valley, the Mirna Valley which is atop a hill, the town overlooks great sceneries of nature and the horizon beyond. The fortified town dates back to the 1100s and its ancient architecture can attest to that. The greatest interest in Hum, is the watch and bell tower located in the town. The tower dates back to 1552 and it used to be a strategic point in the town’s defense organization many years ago.
