All cultural sights


Hum, the smallest town in the world, has urban structure, the town gates and the Classicist church of St. Jerome.

Hum is known for being the smallest town in the world with just 20 inhabitants. Its structure is essentially urban, with fortifications, town gates and numerous Glagolitic inscriptions. The old 16th century custom of inhabitants choosing a prefect among themselves for a period of one year was reintroduced in 1977. The parish church with its Classicist façade was built in 1802 on the site of an older church. The Church of St. Jerome, in the graveyard, is decorated by 12th century frescoes.
