Ancient Oak from Drnava
Species: Pedunculate oak (Quercus robur L.)
Age: 700 years
Region: Drnava, Rožňava district, Slovakia
Ancient oak from Little Pest
The old oak is located next to the former grounds of Count Andrássy's famous iron-plant in Drnava. It was here in the 1940s that the structural parts of the famous Chain Bridge "Lánchíd" in Budapest were cast, for which the village earned the nickname "Kis Pest"- Little Pest. Today the tree is one of the stops on the nature trail on the old trade route and has been an integral symbol of the village for several generations. There is mention of the stout oak in the municipal chronicle as early as 1670.
