One of the sights you should visit in Croatia is the small town Hum, the smallest town in the world. It is located in the heart of Istria which mostly managed to retain its original form since the 11th century. According to the legend, Hum arose when the Giants built towns in the valley of the river Mirna and with the remaining stones they built Hum. This town has only 20 inhabitants. Although it is small it has a huge historical story.

Inside the preserved city walls there are two small streets with three rows of houses. Today, Hum is a city-monument, one of the rare examples of the urban development within the city walls. Apart from being famous for being the smallest city in the world, recently it became popular for “biska”, brandy spiced with mistletoe and made according to the old recipe originating from Hum. Every year at the end of October, the Grappa festival takes place here, presenting brandy producers from all over Istria. You can’t leave Istria if You didn’t try this special brandy.

Its uniqueness tells the special story, the place that can’t be missed if You find Yourself in Istria.
