The lime avenue is one of the longest and most famous avenues in Slovenia. The avenue measures 1900 metres and consists of 290 trees of small-leaf lime (Tilia cordata) and large-leaf lime (Tilia platyphyllos). With its dominant position at the entrance to the town, the avenue is a unique characteristic of Logatec. According to oral tradition, it was planted around 1810 in memory of the wedding of Napoleon Bonaparte and Marie-Louise, daughter of the Austrian Emperor Francis II. The avenue was therefore first named after Louise and eventually changed to Napoleon’s avenue.
