HOLIDAYS IN SZCZAWNICA - RELICT PINE

After driving 650 km or 404 miles (15 hours because of a break for sleep and meal) we have got to Szczawnica for this year summer holidays. I recommend to all of you this place. Amazing mountains views and great atmosphere.


Above the north-eastern part of Pieniny range reigns Sokolica (747 m asl) – a peak overgrown by fir-beech forests, rocky only at the very top, and descending on the southern slopes, preserves ageing several hundred years the relict pine. Their silhouettes, with boughs twisted by wind are symbol of Pieniny.
Here we come to the 500 year old tree that could become a model and inspiration for each bonsai entuziasty. It's an amazing tree - judge yourself.









Isn't it beautifull.
