“nice little town with great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Been there probably five times (we go there everytime we are in Istra). I like the quietness of the place. It does not attract crowds so that you can enjoy on your own.
We even stayed there in an appartment - an experience I can recommend! You wake up in the middle of nowhere.

“Cute little town with really friendly citizens”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Town bills itself as the smallest city in the world - US Census says a city needs at least 2000 people to be called a "city", so this smallest city thing is just hype.

There's really not much to see, just a bar, 2 shops, and 2 churches.

“Lovely city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

Lovely little town, very tiny (only 30 inhabitants) but cute stone houses and nice cosy atmosphere. Absolutely worth a visit, and don't miss out the local restaurant.

“Not worth the trip”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2013

We visited Hum after 8 days cycling around Istria, so we were familiar with the region and its attractions.
I realize that Hum has been cleverly marketed as being the world's smallest town. But after having seen many, many other similar towns in Istria, I don't see what the fuss is about.
Hum is a picturesque little stone-walled town with an old church (locked) and tower (locked). There are a number of tourist- themed shops.
When we arrived, there were already 4 huge tour buses and about 20 cars jamming the little parking lot outside the town. Needless to say, the streets were full of tourists.
There many other equally attractive, old, historic towns in Istria, without the tourists and without the souvenir shops.
I would not go out of my way to visit Hum, although if you are driving in the area, it is a pleasant enough place to visit.

“very small town”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Cute little town! Couple is outside. It was very difficult to approach. Terrible parting will take you there. Compensated by the local artisan liqueurs, jams etc..
