The Ruprechtov windmill is a Dutch-type mill, but it is something else and it is obvious at first glance. The mill was built in 1873 and after modernization at the end of the 19th century, the miller Cyril Wágner was inspired by America and equipped the mill with a Halladay turbine. The mill was ground until 1937, and after the war the mill was not put back into operation and fell into disrepair. It was renovated in the 1990s and today it is in the proposal for registration with UNESCO. It is possible to stay here. It is proven to be the only one in the world.
