Narrative

According to a legend the Devil is said to have washed spoons in the hollow (L.Jakubenoka, 2006).

Attraction
Well-shaped linden, but there is much household waste (bottles and other things) underneath its dense foliage, around the stem.
Availability
Rather easy accessible. The linden is located next to abandoned house (2011), which may become inhabited at some other time and thus the access may be restricted without receiving prior approval from the owners.
Infrastructure, management, facilities
No tourism infrastructure in direct vicinity, only some abandoned homes. Nearest town - Akniste, where one shall find tourism infrastructure: a shop, a catering site, and some sightseeing objects.

Comments
In summer 2011 the "Lesikini" home was uninhabited; a few years ago the house was for sale, but, most probably, it was not sold. There is a secular oak (circumference - 4,20m) growing 10 m from the house.
