she has this article on the Linden Tree. It makes a great introduction to the spiritual meaning the linden carries for Slavic Peoples. It is no coincidence that a linden tree stands next to so many churches in Slavic countries.
I had overlooked or forgotten this earlier article until I attended a Webinar and was exposed to different research with this video presentation.
Thanks for posting Kai, I know the Linden tree also from Germany and the Netherlands, but also remember it's magnificense and wonderful smell.
I also know Lindenstraße from Berlin and Kassel in Germany and ofcourse Unter den Linden (the Under the Linden boulevard) in Berlin too. Many streets in Germany have this name, because like in Poland, Slovakia, the Czech republic you have many Linden trees.

I have walked in these 2 particular Linden streets (Lindenstraßen) in these German cities. Large Linden trees (old city trees) can give such a street a wonderful and also melancholic atmosphere. I can imagine that some people who met their first love or date in a Lindenstreet under Linden trees will have romantic, melancholic and even nostalgic feelings about that.
Linden trees make cities, towns and villages more beautiful and again they have a lovely smell when they blossom.
