Located near Ignalina among the rivers and lakes of eastern Lithuania’s scenic Aukštaitija National Park, the wooden water mill at Ginučiai was originally constructed in the 19th century and sits over waters running into Lake Linkmenas. Until 1968 it was used for making flour and producing electricity but following its closure, the mill was extensively refurbished and reopened in 1978 as part museum and part rustic, back-to-nature hotel. It is now the only wooden water mill still standing in the country to have all its original milling machinery still in use, including the mill stones and water wheels.
A visit to Ginučiai can be combined with the nearby eccentric Museum of Ancient Beekeeping nearby. The mill is situated 60 miles (100 km) north of Vilnius in Aukštaitija National Park and is open in summer and free to visit.
