Entry Description

Photo was taken in Poland within the National Park. Tree in the photo is the oak, which is a monument of nature. In the park are the largest oaks in this part of Europe.Today’s circumferences of some of those monument oaks are up to 10 m. The most famous among them are those named Lech, Czech and Rus (circumferences: 930 cm, 810 cm and 670 cm, respectively), all to be met at the palace park. Legend has it that they stand there to commemorate the parting of the three brothers who once set out from there to three cardinal directions to eventually found what was to become Poland, Bohemia and Russia.
