Water Mills in Oblazy

Water Mills in Oblazy

Reconstructed watermills are a jewel of Slovakia and should be visited by everyone who comes to Liptov.

Place called Oblazy is located at the confluence of Hutianka, Borovianka and Ráztočianka and is an excellent combination of relax and historic sightseeing of Liptov region. Originally there were three mills in the Kvačianska Valley. It is even mentioned the fourth mill, deeper in the valley, below Roháč, which was taken by high water in the 19th century. The mills were gradually cast until they became almost complete ruins. Since 1980, however, the conservationists have begun to save these gems of rural architecture and today they are completely renovated, even before the upper mill was put into operation. So you can look at the technology of grinding flour in an old way. After arriving at this magical place, volunteers who are alternating every year and are living here in the middle of nature without electricity as in the old days. Both objects - the upper and the lower mill - are open to visitors.
