Matters of interest

The European Beech, together with an oak, five yew-trees and a few hundred-year-old limes represent the remains of a former reeve garden. The tree could be also called the Teltschiks´ beech after the owners of the domain. They were managing it from 1605 until 1849. In that year, Heinrich Teltschik was the last one in the reeve authority. You can learn more about the history of the parish in the local Museum of Suchdol upon the Oder Parish and in the Museum of the Moravian Brethren. In the area of Suchdol upon the Oder, there also grow two other memorable English oaks.
