Nature is strong and can do various wonders that have been astonishing all nature lovers for centuries. Evidence of this is also a giant sequoia in Topoľčianky, which belongs to protected trees.

The giant sequoia is one of the oldest woody plants on Earth. It can reach height of 100 meters and can live up to 4,000 years. It was imported to Europe between 1853 and 1855 and was widely planted in chateau parks as ornamental woody plants.

The one in Topoľčianky belongs to one of thirteen sequoia trees in Slovakia. Its massive and tall trunk can be admired in the park of the local manor house, which is one of the most beautiful parks in Slovakia. In addition to the giant sequoia, you will also find many other rare and old trees here.

The open-country park in Topoľčianky stretches for two and a half kilometers along the Leveš brook from the village center to its edge. In 1982, it was declared a protected natural monument and since 1996, it has been included in the list of protected areas with a fourth degree of protection. The educational trail leads through the park as well.
