Historic Mills - Windmill in Holic

Date of Issue : 26 April 2013

There were more than 5 thousand mills using water energy in the 19th century in Slovakia and more than 20 windmills. One of such mills preserved until today is a Dutch-type windmill in Holíč. It is located in the south-eastern part of the city, on the forest’s edge above the Theresian granary. The mill was built in the 1880s and was in use until 1926. The builder of the mill's technology was a joinery master František Sláma from Jevíčko.
