The Day of Hum - the smallest town in the world
The election of the župan (major) of Hum
According to legend Hum, the medieval town also known as the smallest town in the world, was founded completely by chance. Giants that were at the time building neighboring towns in the Mirna River valley decided to use the few remaining rocks and build a miniature town. This little town hasn't changed much over the centuries, and it seems as if even today the narrow stone-paved streets echo the tales of ancient knights. Each year on the Day of Hum all men from the parish elect their prefect in the municipal loggia according to the old tradition, by engraving votes on the wooden stick known as ‘raboš’. The town prefect is responsible for his parish, for settling disputes among residents and imposing penalties for disorderly conduct in Hum and the surrounding villages. And then to top it all, the election is followed by a folk festival where in the untouched, wonderful surrounding there is a chance to taste both the finest traditional dishes and well-known homemade wine and brandy. Hum is also the mecca of Croatian Glagolitism where you can see the first monuments and trace the very beginnings of Croatian literacy, as well as get to know the old Croatian alphabet ‘glagoljica’.
