The symbol of willpower and the will to live.

This 230-250 year old sycamore tree can be found in the historical garden of Tata. It was still young when it fell over, due to the wet soil and other natural forces, so it has been growing on the ground, leaning over Lake Cseke for more than 200 years. Yet every spring, it turns green and brings happiness to the hearts of the visitors of the landscape garden. It is more than a tree, it is a sign, a symbol. A symbol of willpower and the will to live. A message: "Never give up!"
