You have to bring several people with you to measure the circumference of the ancient oak that is almost 400 years old. The diameter of the ancient tree at the height of 1.3 m is 210 cm, the circumference 6.6 m and the height of the tree is 20 m. It is called the War Oak because it has witnessed many historical events. Apparently, peasants of the Pühajärv Manor refused to work for the manor in autumn 1841 and the rebels were punished near the oak. A beautiful park with walking tracks surrounds the tree today.

Murrumetsa matkarada

After doing many Estonian matkaradas, this one seemed like an average one. Park is neet and all, but is more urban. Anyways the injured and amputated oak in the park is a wonder in it's own right. If...



Amazing Otepaa!

A wonderful place for familiarity and recreation with a little added to mystery and path breath. Nature and peace for full well-being.




It is a great place to relax. Pühajärve is a really beautiful place surrounded by nature. It is nice to make a picnic
