We have already talked about the fact that in the Summer Garden there is the oldest oak tree, which is 350 years old, but these are not all “Monuments of wildlife” located on the territory of the gardens of the Russian Museum.

On the Oil Meadow of the Mikhailovsky Garden, there is also a century-old oak, which is as much as 350 years old.

Rumor has it that the oak was planted back in the days when a Swedish manor stood on this place and hunting grounds stretched.
