Do you want to learn about the life in the smallest town in the world? Then Hum is the place to be – it is only seven kilometres away from Roč. According to the legend, this small town was built from the remaining blocks when the Giants built towns in the valley of the Mirna River. It is surrounded by walls which were used to keep the Turks and the Venetians from entering the town. At the entrance to the town there are two gates which hold Glagolitic inscriptions and which open once a year when the mayor of the city “for a year” is elected. This small town, except for its size, is also known for biski, brandy made from mistletoe. In late October, the Brandy Festival is held in the city every year and it is there that the best Istrian producers of brandy compete. Besides the brandy, be sure to taste the local Istrian specialties.
