Hum is situated in the centre of Istria with barely 20 inhabitants. Only an hour-long pleasant drive from Umag, you can turn your trip to Hum into a beautiful story of Istrian small towns. This hidden part of Istria is extremely friendly to random visitors and you can always find a parking space there and as traffic jams are rare even in the peak of the summer season.
The western side of the town is enclosed with a wing of city walls, while on the remaining three sides the defense system consisted of the interconnected outer walls of houses.

The painting above the altar is the work of B. d’Anne. The church has a late Gothic chalice and ciborium from 1539.
The Romantic church St. Jeronim, with its semicircle apse stands at the graveyard. The church contains valuable wall paintings from the 12-13th cen
