HISTORY OF ŠIKLŮV MLÝN
The western town of Šiklův mlýn was built by Libor Šikl on the site of the former Mouček mill, which was built in the 15th century and belonged to the miller Nedema, whose daughter married the miller Moučka from Žďár, after whom the mill got its name. In 1909, Johan Šikl bought Mouček’s mill and ran it until 1945. Since the beginning of the 20th century, when tramping began to develop, the mill included several rooms for rent. From the 1930s, Sokol camps were held here, after the end of the war the scouts camped in the valley and later the tramps also held their meetings here. Over time, the scouts were replaced by pioneers and these pioneer camps were followed by western camps. In 1990 Libor Šikl got back the family property in restitution and country-style meetings began to be held here. Every year a larger and larger western town was built here, which has acquired its present dimensions.
