Mill on Mura opened

We are pleased to announce that in Žabnik near Sveti Martin na Muri once again floating river mill has started to work. Official opening has been held on Friday 28 April 2006 without a ceremony, for about hundred years ago there were no festive suits, speeches, cutting ribbons.

What was life like then and what people did it was presented in the opening program situated on the river bank beside the mill. The mill was opened by Head of Međimurje County Josip Posavec. Craftsman Ivan Strnad with his team did the construction work.

Of course this project could not be realized without understanding and aid of donors. That is why we thank: LIFE TCY, Međimurje County, AED/USAID, Ministry of Sea, Tourism, Transport and Development, Office for Government Associations of Republic of Croatia, Zagreb Bank, INA Oil Industry, Croatian Forests, Croatian Tourist Board, Međimurje County Tourist Board, Municipality Sveti Martin na Muri.

Nevertheless the opening does not conclude this project. Arrangement of educational path in nature, most northern point in Croatia, ethnographic collection dedicated to the milling and traditional life alongside river Mura, traffic signalization, approaching path and environment is still to come. All this will serve people to get to know traditional and cultural heritage of this place 

You are welcome to visit the place where tradition still lives.
