Watermill and Millers’ House

Watermill and Millers’ House, Gorica Svetojanska - Hrvatska

The Jastrebarsko area is rich in water, and there used to be a large number of watermills operating in the region.Millers were well respected in the community and an important part of village life.Nowadays, however, there are only a few mills still standing.Fortunately, Sveta Jana association recognized their importance and renewed one of the old watermills. Godrijan’s watermill on the Draga brook in the village of Draga Svetojanska was built around 1890 and restored in 2007. Now it once again uses spring water and a millstone to grind wheat. In the past, mills were used for village gatherings, festivals and various events.In 2009, another valuable building was erected beside the mill in Draga Svetojanska.It is the Miller’s House, a cultural masterpiece. Built beside the mill on the Draga brook, this priceless treasure reminds us of times past, and the life that used to be led in the area. Miller’s House is a replica of a typical house that the miller’s family used to occupy. Although smaller than usual, the house contains all the traditional elements of a historic house. The house also contains a vestibule. This is where the hosts used to greet guests and perform various chores.
