In the movie "Janosik. A true story" one of the mills appears in the film as Uhorčík's hideaway. We can see the Lower Mill - "brunčiakovský", which was built by the village of Veľké Borové in the first half of the 19th century. There are two wheels on the mill, which powered not only the mill equipment, but also the old type of sawmill. Nowadays, the sawmill has undergone a complete reconstructionand became a tourist attraction.
