Tree of the World is a Croatian myth about the structure of the universe. Ancestors believed the universe around them was divided into two basic elements, according to which they divided everything that exists into heaven and earth. Up and down. Light and darkness. What connected the heaven and the earth was the vast "Tree of the World" as the axis that held everything together.
