Communism

In 1974 the Communist Party purchased the mill which was kept in operation unlike many other mills, as the Communist Party did not tolerate smaller entrepreneurships. Lidmilův mlýn, however, was a very large and modern mill for its time for it had two water turbines: one for the lumber mill and one for the flourmill. In 1985 the mill was shut down for the radical renovations and transformed into a private hotel for party leaders and their relatives.
