The ruin of the big wind mill is a rave piece of industrial architecture in the Czech Republic and whole Europe. The mill (named Vetrnik) was built in the Dutch style and the place where it stands (400 m above the sea level) is called Chlumky. The oldest known reference comes from 1604, the mill had been working until the beginning of the 18th century, when the owner abandoned it.
You can get here by car or by foot following the red tourist line (about 3.5 km long) from the Sedlcany town.
More information (in Czech language ;-) you can get here:

The parking place is only few meters from the road - almost in front of the mill, the final cache is located in the small forest about 250m from the mill.
