The smallest town in the world, Hum in Istria in northwest Croatia, has become a part of the European Union. The medieval town overlooking the Mima Valley is a popular tourist destination. The people of Hum hope that membership in the EU will bring in more tourists and their money.
Hum has only about 25 permanent residents. They pride themselves on their openness and hospitality. But they do have some concerns about joining the EU and giving up some of their recently gained sovereignty
