Hum (417 m)

Hum is the heighest peak of Lastovo island and it is located 417  meters above sea level.

Years ago, Yugoslav People’s Army was stationed here because Lastovo was one of its main military basis. Today, in this area,  you can see the remains of this abandoned military facility just below the peak.

Church of St. George is located here. It is six centuries old.  Long time ago, this was the place where guards were kept to prevent unwelcomed guests to come to this island unnoticed.

This is also the best viewpoint on the island that offers a view of the rounded hills, beautiful bays and vineyards, as well as the great view towards the sea and other islands.

Besides Hum with its 417 m, there is also Plešivo brdo with its 415 m just nearby.
