The venerable Turkey oak near Rani lug village
Species: Turkey oak (Quercus cerris)
Age: More than 300 years
Region: Village of Rani lug, Tran Municipality, Bulgaria
The oak of the village by the marshlands
The impressive venerable Turkey oak grows near St. Nicholas Church. The locals take great pride in this beautiful tree, which creates a unique environment by the 15th century church. The church was home to the first local school, established in 1859. The village is in the Tran region, which is renowned for having preserved the most ancient names of its settlements. “Rani lug” tells more about local geography and nature. “Rani” means “early”, while “lug” means “meadow” and “marshland”.
