The most beautiful pedunculate oak of Debrecen won the special prize in the Tree of the Year competition

The pedunculate oak was named by the Matura and Nature Foundation / Nature Library. Its characterization reveals that this specimen is well situated, located on the right side of the square, “its imposing, royal appearance is inherently eye-catching, and due to its capital size, it is considered the largest and most beautiful protected tree in the city center.

It’s like a living history book if you could talk about the past of Calvinist Rome.

The tree witnessed the museum being rebuilt. On November 4, 1956, it witnessed when tanks rolled in and shattered the building of the opposite post office, assuming a resistance center was operating there. He watched when the monumental works of Christ’s trilogy by our greatest painter, Mihály Munkácsy, were placed on the window of the museum’s dome hall. “

The results were highlighted at an online awards ceremony this year, from which all nominating communities could apply by the tree. The Tree of the Year received a voucher entitling to special treatment. The Hero Tree Reward is a health assessment and treatment proposal. The special prize winner of the National Forestry Association received the OEE gift package. In addition to the Tree of the Year, the Hero Tree, and the special prize of the National Forestry Association, all the finalists received a diploma this year as well, recognizing the importance of the trees.

St Martin’s Day Goose feast has a long history, the first written record date back to 1711. Taking place on November 11th, Martin’s Day is a remarkable day in the traditional peasant folk calendar, being the last day of the fairs.

In addition to being the last day of the fairs, the tradition of St Martins day for the tradition of baking geese and to judge the new wine, since it is already drinkable.  At the end of the Martin’s Goose Roast Dinner, the tradition known as Martin’s glass is to cheer with the mature new wine in celebration of this day. 

St. Martin’s Day also marks the end of the peasant year. According to folk tradition, the annual economic work was completed, and then the winter resting period of nature has begun. The maids then received their annual salary and a goose as a bonus.

In keeping with this tradition, last year Debrecen and Eger teamed up to organize Martin’s Day goose feast on the Kossuth Square on November 8-10, 2019. 

So far, this year’s feast details have been slow to materialize, except that it will take place between the 13th-15th of November and will be co-organized with Eger like last year. We will keep you updated with the latest details as we get more information.
