The most beautiful plane tree of the Jászai Mari square
Species: Plane tree (platanus)
Age: 80 years
Region: Budapest, Hungary
In the heart of the capital and its people
The giant plane is one of the most visited trees in the country, eternalized on innumerable family photos with family members resting in its shade. One of the outstanding figures of Hungarian literature, Miklós Radnóti and his wife, Auntie Fifi often walked their dog and had picnics in the shade of the tree. The area surrounding the plane tree became a park in 1903, and it won the title of "number one ornamental garden of Budapest" in the '90s.
