The floating mill on the Mura river

     
     


    The floating mill on the Mura river - presentation

    Coexistence between man and the river led to the construction of floating mills as early as the 4th century. The floating mill is a unique invention that efficiently harnesses the natural energy of water and allows farmers to make ground whole-wheat products.

     

    Once, over 90 mills operated on the Mura river, but today only the Babič mill in Veržej is still working. Recently, a floating mill in Ižakovci was created to help preserve the rich historical and cultural heritage of the area.

     

    The mill has already become part of the local tourist trade, providing milling services and typical regional food. We hope that it will help keep the old traditions alive!
