In Zaporozhye there is a unique oak, whose age is about 700 years old. The history of the tree is surrounded by a myriad of legends, "meetings" with legendary people and historical events.

Zaporizhzhya Oak was a witness to writing a letter from the Zaporozhians to the Turkish sultan, under his crown Taras Grigorievich Shevchenko read the poem "Catherine" about the sad fate of the peasants, and in 1648 under his powerful branches rested Bogdan Khmelnytsky.
