A lime tree in the community of Běleň not far away from Malšín has a very interesting fate. The lime tree is said to be the oldest lime tree in the South Bohemia. It was planted around the year 1200.
In 1951 the lime tree / girth 12,5 metres / seemed to die after it had been thunderstruck. However, something very surprising happened. While the community of Běleň became extinct, the lime tree is still alive.
