The king of ancient Russia had to be married to Russian girl. Nobles selected the most beautiful girls of the country despite the dynastic reasons. Beauty is known to have been the sole criterion, but there were several minor. For example, she had to be tall. This is a tree from regal estate. There is the series of such trees. They were artificially planted and they are notable at the peaceful background. Like the precious collection of the most beautiful women of several epochs. The tree is a bit scared, it's limbs are expressive like gestures and it is... certainly beautiful and tall.

Location: Alexandria park, Petergof, Saint Petersburg, Russia
