Kojetínské Hills

Linden near the Fojta´s wood (382 m)

A giant lime growing above the old path at the edge of the „Fojta´s wood“ in Hodslavice. Due to the crown shape, it is evident that the tree originally grew in the open countryside. Most likely it was the so-called border tree used to determinate the boundaries of ancestral estates in landscape. The respectable age exceeding three centuries led to the protection of this tree, it was declared memorable in 1980.

On the way to the memorable tree, you passed an extraordinary building – the polygonal Fojta´s barn, at coordinates N 49° 32.28315', E 18° 1.26893'. Grain and dry clover was stored in the barn. Local legend claims that it was built during the post-White Mountain era as a secret oratory for evangelicals. A copy of the barn can be found in the Wallachian Museum in Rožnov pod Radhoštěm. West from Hodslavice we can find another protected cultural – a former windmill of Dutch type from 1864. It recently underwent a renovation.
