Rogalin Palace, Poland – three legendary oaks

Lech, Czech and Rus – three famous oaks ….

Three of the monumental oaks at Rogalin Palace near Poznan are named after three legendary brothers who were said to have founded the Slavic nations: Poland (also known as Lechia), Bohemia (Cechy now known as the Czech Republic) and Ruthenia (Rus which became Russia, Belarus and Ukraine).

It’s a very special place to visit. We feel so lucky to have been taken there following the Tree Assessment Congress run by The Instytut Drzewa in Wroclaw in 2019.
