The City of Hum, The World’s Smallest Town| Croatia

The town of Hum on the Istrian peninsula has been officially named the smallest town in the world, although it doesn’t look like it. This ‘city’ was founded in the 11th century and has remained almost intact ever since, which is why it still has the title of a city. There are only two streets in Hum and only 30 inhabitants according to the 2011 population census. Despite being small, Hum is known for its unique mistletoe brandy that you can only taste there. In fact, every year at the end of October all Istrian brandy makers meet at Hum fair where visitors can try different types of brandy. It is actually a 7 kilometer road with 11 erected monuments, the last one being the Gates of the town of Hum.
