Malin, a symbol of Medulin and guardian of its port

At the end of the waterfront promenade in Medulin, there is a windmill locally known as Malin. Built 140 years ago, it is a symbol of Medulin that keeps watch over its port. Today, it has a new, renovated look and grinds the grain again – with the help of electromotors when there is not enough wind.

Today’s Malin of Medulin is a faithful copy of the original – a windmill with a grinding stone, wooden mill elements, a rotating cap and eight sails. Inside, there are various items needed for flour processing, as well as antiques, until recently left forgotten in attics, and which now shine again with their old splendour in the restored windmill. Every evening from 15 July to 31 August, from 8 pm to 10 pm, the smell of freshly baked bread additionally attracts visitors to visit the place and see how flour was made and how bread was baked in the past.

Malin Fest – a unique combination of a traditional and fun event – takes place here in front of the windmill. This year it is scheduled for 10 August.
