LIPA - the queen of Slovenian trees

Great part of Slovenia is covered with woods; in fact, this is the third most forested country in Europe. The species of trees are very diverse; however, the queen of all Slovenian Trees and a Slovenian national tree is LIPA – Tilia-Linden Tree - Basswood.

Lipa, usually a huge, lush tree, you can notice with us on one of our private tours around Slovenia. Linden tree is for us the tree of life, the tree of health, the tree of victories, the tree of fertility as well as the tree of justice and mystical life. In the past, there was no newspapers, Radio, TV, internet, social media… People met under the linden trees and shared daily news, had some fun and organized many dances. There are quite some legends and one of the most romantic ones we will share with you when with us on one of our walking tours in the capital. Have you heard for Lipizzaner horses?

Lipa’s most intense smell you will notice in late spring. In May and June, we pick up its flowers and dry them well for the calming tea in our cold winters. Old Slovenian saying reveals: “A cup of linden tea a day, keeps the doctor away.” Next to that, we adore linden honey. Generally, honey is something Slovenia is very proud of and the linden one is unique. Join us on our Ljubljana Food Tour; you are going to have a chance to taste this special honey as well.

There are quite a lot of handmade linden products as well. Sneak in some local stores like Moika in Ljubljana. You are going to have a chance to get familiar with natural products, taste some linden tea or even make your own products, which you will proudly bring back home.

Traveling with a private tour guide on a customized tour, you profit in many ways: you get the perspective of locals- people living in the country, intriguing local stories and most important: you get to know the hidden treasures known by local tourist guides only.
