The century-old tser on the way to Kosti
The century-old church on the way to Kosti
The village can be reached by taking the road Tsarevo - Malko Tarnovo, and right before the turnoff for Bulgari is the turnoff for Kosti. At the junction there is a GP control, which is also an excellent landmark.
Taking the road to Kosti, look around to the left for this century-old tser, which I will now present to you.
Cerus (Quercus cerris) is a broad-leaved deciduous tree with a highly developed root system that penetrates deep into the ground. Cerus is relatively undemanding to environmental conditions, being able to withstand both high and low temperatures.
In height, the cer reaches up to 30-35 meters.
Its bark, gray in color, is recognizable by its noticeably coarser striations. Cera leaves are simple and oblong. They are covered with star-shaped hairs.
An interesting feature of cera is the permanent spike-like outgrowths around the buds, which persist throughout the year.
The maximum age of Quercus cerris is 600 - 700 years.
Today's representative is in its prime - only about 250 years old.
It is as high as 23 meters, and its circumference is 3 meters and 30 centimeters.
And he is very handsome!
There he is!
See you again from Kosti, friends!
Have a nice walk!
