Population: about 20

View from the west

 

Closer view from the west

 

Southern (main) Gate
 
 

 

 

St. Mary's Church and town Loggia

 

The two streets of Hum: Northern and Southern Streets

 

One of the well maintained & still inhabited houses

 

... and one of the half-maintainde

 

The steeple - beautiful from all sides

 

Eastern Gate (?)

 

 

Like many towns & villages throughout Istria, Hum has its share of abandoned buildings

 

 

Birds find home and nice bird view on the roofs and in the walls

 

 

Located at short distance from town walls and buildings is the cemetery with St. Jerolim chruch.

I read on a talk forum that if you want to enter the cemetery

you have to obtain the key at "Humska konoba" (good place to have a meal too)

 

 

However...

... if you want to enter the St. Mary's Chruch ask for the key at the above address.

Easy to find - the world's smallest town isn't that big!

 

Hum is full of Glagolithic encryptions and quotes. This one is from "Istarski razvod"
