The villa of Inocenc Jelen

Inocenc Jelen was a miller. His house was demolished in the 1920s because of the construction of the dam in Vranov nad Dyjí.

In 1927, he invested the compensation paid for the original mill in the construction of a new residential building.

In 1927, the villa was followed by another building, bearing the proud name GARAGE JELEN. As Inocenc Jelen could no longer work as a miller (there were already two other mills in the area), he founded a private transport company. His “SuperBuses” transported the holiday crowds of Vranov nad Dyjí, occasionally also covering trips to Frain an der Thaya in Germany, which was a coveted summer holiday destination.
