King of Spruces - Král smrků
This protected spruce rises northwest of Marianske Lazne between "Svobody" alley and "Smetana" alley. The spruce is estimated to be 200 years old and is a truly majestic tree - the trunk circumference is 450cm and it is 39 m tall. It first emerged from the ground around 1818 when Mariánské Lázně was first declared a public spa. In March 2017 strong wind got the better of the spruce which fell. A fallen tree remains protected, so it can still be admired where it lies.
