An oak and a pine grew as if from one stump in Dubrava forest about 100-150 years ago, the Dubrava Twin Trees are often photographed by hunters as anomalies of nature, or romantics who believe that love can overcome everything. In 1971, these trees were included in the UNESCO list of protected objects of Natural Heritage.
"An oak fell in love with a pine. Nobody knows when it began. Whether the Jaybird forgot where it hid the acorn or a squirrel lost the pine's cone seed. The sprouts grew into trees, and never turned away from each other for more than 150 years. As time went by, the oak was clinging onto the slim pine more and more. And so, they forever remained together to become green and freeze, rustle quietly and struggle against the windstorms".
