Directions to Floating Water Mill in Kolárovo

The mill stands next to the dead arm of the river Dunaj (Danube). It floats on two parallel anchored boats. It is the reconstructed version of the boat mill made by the company Slovenské lodenice Komárno in 1982 following the design of the former boat mill that existed in Radvaň nad Dunajom, only boats it floats on are bigger than the original ones.

The mill is theoretically functional but in reality it cannot work on stationary water, therefore it serves now as a little historic exhibition. The petrol aggregate from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries is one of its interesting exhibits. It is reminiscent of a locomotive and allegedly it is one of the first mechanisms that existed in the world and was used for manufacture of fishing nets.

Construction of the mill is firm enough to endure the impact of even 100-year water. It is connected with the bank by 86 metres (94 yards) long bridge, which is the longest wooden bridge in Europe. The mill is situated on the popular water route that runs down the river Malý Dunaj (Small Danube). It cannot be accessed via water.

The mill is part of the holiday area with several technical monuments and facilities offering refreshment and relaxation. During the summer season, there are numerous cultural and gastronomic events as well as ecocamps for schools.

On the shore of an island beside the mill is a small but well-presented open-air folk museum, comprising thatched cottages and some old village street furniture, distinctive for its defence mechanisms against the flooding inevitable in riverside accommodation. The constant flooding is also responsible for bringing several artefacts from former settlements in the area and the open-air museum is often used by archaeological students as well.

Opening hours:

1 May - 15 October from 9 am to 10 pm

16 October - 30 April from 12 noon to 10 pm

Address: Ochranársky spolok Vodný Mlyn , Dolná 19 , Slovakia, 946 03 View Larger Map
