The author studied the existence of water-driven mills in Pastauski Region from the 18th to 20th centuries. Based on descriptions of 20 such mills, the author centres his study on the system used in specific construction methods for the mills, technical processes that were applied, their dumps and gateways. Also, the author deals with the subjects of who ran the mills, at what times and the condition of their ongoing maintenance. Thanks to the materials that were gathered during complex expeditions, a manual and booklet were created featuring two tourist expedition paths. Also, an interactive map was created that can be accessed on the internet.
