Najevnik Linden Tree

The Najevnik Linden Tree (Slovene: Najevska lipa, Najevnikov lipovec) in Ludranski Vrh, an about 700 years old Tilia cordata, is the tree with the largest girth in Slovenia (10.70 meters; its height is 24 m).[4] The tree is named after the Najevnik Farm.[5] It is a prominent veteran tree reminiscent of the Ottoman invasions and the legendary King Matjaž.[6] It is a place of cultural events, and every July or June a national meeting of Slovene politicians takes place under it.[4][7]
