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.

Well-preserved medieval town, which locals claimed to be the smallest in the world... mthere are only 5 to 10 houses. You need about half an hour to make a tour.

Worth a brief stop while visiting Istra, Croatia. So much history and quaint shops. Biking in this part of Istra would add to the adventure. Looking for nature, peace and quiet stay awhile.

Walking through the town doesn't take very long. It has a few little shops run by locals that offer homemade things and art. The only restaurant offers local... More

Hum, self proclaimed the smallest city in the world. It is nice place for half an hour walk around. On the way to Hum you may see monuments part of so called Glagolitic Alley, a memorial composed of a string of eleven outdoor monuments dotting the road between the villages Roč and Hum.

You will tour the town in 5 minutes but you will be actually touring hundreds of year of Croatian history. The sites are covered with Glagolitic writings (the old Croatian alphabet) and the view from the top on the green vast areas of Istra is priceless.

The worlds smallest town is certainly worth a visit. Medieval an situated up on a hill. Unusual because even if it is old and museum like people live here so it had a very special feeling. We had dinner in the little restaurant there and it was very good and friendly.

I planned to visit Hum on a day trip. When I arrived at this little town, I was mesmerized by it. Spent a couple of hours here before leaving. I drove an hour to my next destination, Novigrad that is. But after spending two hours in that seaside city, I headed back to Hum and spent a night here. As... More

This was magical to visit and the vistas were lovely. We ate at a local restaurant and the food was great. Great place to just relax and check out small town history.
