Two brothers in the Castle park
London plane is the largest of plane trees in the Castle park, which was founded during the reign of Count Ján Suňog in 1745 and his head gardener was Ján František Roder from Silesia. Near the large healthy tree grows another plane, but it is smaller and sick. The two plane trees grow together as two different brothers, their roots are inextricably bound.
