The landscape park of Royal Game Preserve (obora Stromovka) has been a major collection of woody species since the early 19th century. These species were planted at various periods during the park’s development primarily as compositional accents, clusters, and prominent stand-alone trees. Over time, they have evolved into the park’s typical, unmistakable composition.
