Puraviku windmill smithy

This Dutch-style six-storey slate windmill was constructed in 1815.
Come and see whether you can lift a blacksmith’s hammer! Here, you can discover the secrets of a blacksmith's trade and buy newly made ironwork. All wrought iron items are custom-made according to the requests of the clients by old methods of ironworking or contemporary possibilities.

In the winter, the smithy organizes ironwork workshops.

Good to know:
* In 2008, Puraviku windmill received new wings.

* The nearby Artur's Inn is the perfect place to grab something to eat and drink.

We are on the National Registry of Cultural Monuments.
