The longest linden alley in Europe has bloomed in Uzhgorod. Its length reaches over two kilometers. Over 300 linden trees planted in the days of the Austro-Hungary grow on the embankment.
American, Canadian, broadleaf, cordata, and Crimean – linden trees of these kinds create the longest alley. With the young plants planted this spring, it is becoming even longer, adding new species to the list. Activists plan to continue planting new trees.
In addition, as noted by a botanist Yaroslava Hasynets, old trees also need care. In particular, linden trees need regular trimming. Photos in the sign, which is located at the beginning of the alley, need to be updated.
Guide Orest Kohut draws attention to it. He says that the pictures have faded in the sun and rain, and they once showed tourists and residents of Uzhgorod what the linden alley looked like in the past. Guides include the place where three hundred linden trees grow in each of their routes.
Tourists are surprised by a total flowering period, which lasts for about a month. May-June are months of blossoms and the heady aroma of linden trees spreading over Nezalezhnist embankment in Uzhgorod.
Therefore, many residents and visitors like to walk there in this period.
