Houses of Gorski kotar

There are many wooden houses in Prezid which still stand as examples of the traditional architecture of Gorski kotar. Some of them belong to the protected Croatian rural architecture heritage, such as the Vesel, Ožbolt, Žagar and Lipovac houses. These houses with a rectangular ground plan and two narrow eaves are made of stone and wood with tiled or shingled roofs. The Vesel ethno house was opened to the public on 20 September 2003.

Malinarić's bandsaw

In 1906 the ancestors of the Malinarić family built a house and a mill which was in function until 1950.

The selanec mill

The Žagar family („the Selanetzs“) who are the owners of the mill were first mentioned in 1751 in Zamost. They managed to preserve their mills to the present day together with three millstones for centuries grinding corn, wheat, barley and oats from the neighbouring hamlets on both the Croatian and the Slovenian side of the valley.
