Hum – The Smallest Town in the World

Hum – The Smallest Town in the World

Hum, with its 17 inhabitants, is the smallest town in the world, according to the Guinness Book of Records. It is located in the heart of Istria in the Municipality of Buzet. It is 14 kilometres away from the town of Buzet and can be reached by car, excursion buses, and many come on foot so they can better view the interesting sights and natural beauties. 

The most interesting way to get to it is certainly through the Glagolitic Alley („Aleja Glagoljaša“), a road between Roč and Hum, along which great stone monuments are located in the surrounding fields, each representing a letter of the Glagolitic alphabet.
