The Psnak Sawmill and Mill

The Psnak Sawmill and Mill used to operate seasonally due to water conditions. They were only run during the spring season when the snow melted on the mountain slopes (May and June), and again during the period of autumnal rains (September and October). During those times, the water power was used very economically in order to turn both wheels, first the one of the mill and then the one of the sawmill.

Both mills served the Psnak family until the 1970s. In 1997 the family renovated both objects in order to preserve the evidence of the local working traditions and knowledge, as well as of the remarkable ingenuity which allowed the locals to make the most of the area’s natural resources while at the same time preserving the beauty of nature.
