Kojetínské Hills

Kojetín – by the linden (510 m)

Place on the top end of Kojetín shows the extant traditional buildings of a short, lineal village with outbuildings, farmsteads and crofts. Remarkable is a vitality of an age-old large-leaved lime, which is likely the witness of the establishment of Kojetín and it is one of the oldest trees in the Nový Jičín district. The hollow trunk with a trunk circumference of 5 m decorates the surrounding of a nature educational trail. Large-leaved lime reaches a height of up to 30 m, the local copy is 5 meters high. The linden is about 500 years old and its state is satisfactory. Treatment consists of regular removal of sprouts on the trunk. Linden flowers provide an important nectar for bees, it is melliferous plant. Linden flowers also work with colds, fever and infection of the digestive tract. Coal from linden wood was served against colic and diarrhea, it also serves to draw. The wood is soft and it is used for carving and modeling, once even to the manufacture of gunpowder. The bark was got from maceration in water. Rock at the house No. 43 was built of block accumulations of the Štramberk Limestone that come from the now defunct borrow pit on the southwest slope of the Svinec at the road Kojetín-Jičina. conglomerates were mined here between the years 1964 to 1970. The quarry was filled with soil and recultivation of quarry was conducted. The conglomerate outcrop as an example of the „Kojetínských layers“ is preserved above the road to Starý Jičín (yellow mark behind the 9th stop at the Palacký educational trail).
