Water pan mill in Jelka
Water pan mill in Jelka in the south-west of Slovakia is a remarkable technical monument in the central European scale. It is a three-storied wooden mill of a kind one cannot see in the neighbouring countries.
The mill stands on the left bank of the river Malý Dunaj. Its riverbed meanders in the administrative territory of the village Jelka. The 23 kilometre long section of river meanders in combination with vegetation creates original intimate nooks and offers all that is desirable for tourism on water.
The oldest written mention about this mill is from 1894. Originally it was a boat mill owned by Jozef Németh and his son. It was rebuilt in 1900. The milling started in August 1906. The mill operated until 1951. Thanks to the Museum of Homeland studies in Galanta and the municipal office of Jelka, the structure was renewed in 1992 and a small open-air museum dedicated to the farming past of the village was established near it.
The reconstructed mill is accessible to public. A well equipped camping site is near the mill. It offers refreshment, option to camp and to anchor boats.
Pan mill in Tomášikovo
The pan mill in Tomášikovo in the south-west of Slovakia is one of few surviving water mills in Slovakia with bottom mill race. Today is the technical monument, which demonstrates the past milling activities in southern Slovakia.
The mill stands about 2 km west of the village Tomášikovo on the river Malý Dunaj in point of its confluence with the brook Suchý. Miller János Maticza built it in 1893. The last reconstruction and modernization of the mill took place in 1940. The mill operated until 1960. In 1982 it was reconstructed and adapted as an exhibit of the Museum of Homeland studies in Galanta.
The structure of the mill with shingle rood and a large driving wheel using the bottom water stands of pillars made of locust wood. The mill is still functional. It contains its original interior furniture and original milling utensils. It is accessible via a little footbridge from the riverbank.
