Pálffy Oak of memories

The Pálffy oak is one of the last trees that began to write its story before the arrival of the Pálffy family in Malacky. All you have to do is slow down and the old tree will tell you stories about noble family, wars, old loves, epidemics, fires and markets. It is one of the oldest specimens located in the grounds of the National Cultural Monument Castle Park, and it, along with trees located in the immediate vicinity of the manor, make up the composition of the park which forms a wild forest.
