European tree of the year  Hungary - Eger  The legend has it that in 1552, during the successfully defended Turkish attack against the Eger castle the Turk army was directed from under this tree. Unfortunately the legend is not true, this tree was planted together with many others at the time when Karoly Eszterhazy was the bishop of the city (18th c.)
