Schaubmarov Mlyn is located in the Cajla district of Pezinok. It is considered to be the largest mill on a stream in Slovakia and one of the largest mills of its kind in Europe. This cultural and technical monument represents a typical squire’s Mills of the 16th to 18th centuries. It was built in 1767 by the Pálffy family, and since 1857 it has been owned and run by four generations of the Schaubmar family from Bavaria.
Since its creation, the Mill building has preserved its Baroque character. The restored technical equipment of the mill represents two development phases. The older phase is represented by the remains of a stone mill from the mid-19th century, the second development phase, from 1913, is a simple cylindrical mill with a water wheel. The Mill closed its commercial operations in 1951.
The entire property has been preserved in almost original condition, including the architecture and mechanical equipment. The current renovation is based on Vincent Hakszer's work.
Inside the mill there is also an exhibition of naïve art from the Slovak National Gallery, one of its kind in Slovakia exhibiting more than one hundred paintings and sculptures. The works of significant artists are displayed not only from Slovakia, but also an exclusive collection of works from the Slovak enclave of Kovačica in Serbia, the Czech Republic, France, Italy, Germany, Poland, Portugal, Israel and Brazil.
