Six-Trunk Lime Tree (protected tree)




Did you know?

A 300-year-old six-trunk lime tree is the jewel of the park: it is one of Slovakia’s 111 protected lime trees. The lime tree is one of the traditional Slavic symbols and one of the unofficial symbols of Slovakia. This particular tree is 30 m tall, with a trunk circumference of a massive 670 cm. Lime trees were particular favourites of George I Rákóczi’s wife, Zuzana Lórantffy, by whose order a church was built next to a lime tree in 1640. Later on, her great-grandson Francis II Rákóczi had a hundred lime trees planted in that area, just as he did at the manor house in Zborov.
