Linden tree of Bzheta

Linden tree of Bzheta

Located at an altitude of 400 m above sea level, with an age of over 200 years, the color of this tree’s leaves varies from one side to the other, which is only noticeable from above. It is said that this tree was planted by the inhabitants themselves for protection against erosion, which is clear from the fact that it is the only linden tree on the whole slope, which is surrounded only by shrubs. In addition to the natural values, the Bzheta linden tree is also very important for the community memory of the area: it was under its shadow in the XVIII century that Shkreli’s men gathered to discuss the reconstruction of the Catholic Church, destroyed and closed several times in different periods, Turkish, Montenegrin and Communist.
