Along the main street Ivya you can see the old ordinary buildings of the city and of course the main attraction - Church of Saints Peter and Paul, but there is another interesting object - water Mill. The building was built on the river Ivenka, presumably at the end of the 19th - the first half of the 20th century.

Initially, the mill was one-story; in old pre-war photographs and postcards you can see what the building looked like before the second floor was added.

Many sources contain information that the mill in Ivye was built in 1920 or 1926. Perhaps at that time another floor and an attic were completed.

Today Mlyn is one of the shopping and entertainment facilities of the city. The building has been reconstructed and is being rented out for various needs. I am glad that during the restoration work, the authentic rubble masonry of the first floor was kept open.

The water mill is located at Karl Marx Street 38, below is the point with the location on the map:

If you are in these parts, I recommend going to the neighboring village of Lipnishki, there is a unique Church of Saint Casimir and part old manor Volsky.
