Hobuveski

This limestone building with a round floor plan and a basement has a diameter of 16 metres.
Hobuveski, dating from 1379, was originally used for milling flour when the city was under siege or when watermills could not be used due to lack of water. The mill mechanism was operated by eight horses that turned it inside the building.
This extremely unique construction displays historical works of stone art.
Artistic stones that once belonged to the local houses found their way to the mill as a result of the houses being destroyed in the bombings of March 1944.
The two floors exhibit weighhouse bas-reliefs, lintel stones, small stone terraces, window columns, etc.
Today, the mill is also a venue for theatrical performances, other events, presentations, and mediaeval evenings for up to 140 people.
