Czarci Młyn (Devil's Mill) - museum with mill machines from 1890 and a replica of a 6 m water wheel. Historical bread oven, herb garden. Bread-making workshops by appointment. The watermill in Świeradów-Zdrój (Czerniawa Zdrój) was built around 1890. It is an example of structures that used to be built erected in the Silesian-Czech borderland. The machines in the building are original and create a unique open-air museum of typical equipment of farm mills from the turn of the nineteenth century, built according to the so-called American system in which grain was conveyed mechanically. The mill was driven by a water wheel of 6.5-m in diameter. It is one of the few mills of this type in Lower Silesia. A bakery with a wood-fired bread oven was also accommodated in the building. It can be visited during the tour.
In the years 2010-2012, the mill was revitalized: the building was completely renovated, and the machinery restored. The launch of the water wheel was a great success. In addition, the Garden of Plants and Herbs was created around the mill, where you can see the creek that used to drive the wheel. There is a shelter for barbecues. The facility is disabled-friendly.
Today, the mill is vibrant with life. Numerous events, meetings and workshops on bread-baking are held, combined with an environmental class at the Centre for Environmental Education NATURA 2000 ‘Izerska Łąka’. A visit to ‘Czarci Młyn’ is a great opportunity to experience the times when flour production and bread baking were of so great a value.
