The Pear Tree in Drásov
A Beautiful Solitary Tree
Near the municipality of Drásov stands a pear tree - it's beauty is known all around and its resilience is breathtaking. The tree is a true hero as it grows only 25 metres from the uranium mine that was opened at the end of the 1950s and the excavated tailings were deposited on a heap near the tree. Fortunately, the mining did not last long and the edge of the heap stopped only 20 metres from the tree. It is incredible that the pear tree withstood these hard times and the locals can still enjoy its beauty and juicy fruit.
