Water Mill in Slup

Vodn___ml__n_ve_Slupi_01.jpg Corn is the crop accompanying our region for long millenniums. To get to know the history of its processing, you can go to Slup, close to Znojmo. A meeting of traditional folk craft and folk groups called “Bread feasts” is annually held in front of the monument.

The unique water mill can be found approximately 15 kilometres south-east from Znojmo. The object is a very interesting Renaissance building of a large mill with four functional water wheels and the mill run. Thanks to its extent and architectonic processing, this is a really unique and interesting technical monument.

The main part of the sightseeing includes the mill premises where the visitor may see demonstration operation of four complete production units – the old Czech mill system, device for millet production, American and roll mill system. You can see the whole process of crops milling there.

A new exposition called Miller´s Trade Development was opened in the national cultural monument in 2009. The exposition took the 1st position in the Gloria musealis competition in the category of Museum Act of the year 2009. The mill is open to public from April to October, Tuesday to Sunday, and on bank holiday from 9 to 17 o´clock.
