Тюльпанное Дерево

The largest tulip tree in Russia grows on the bank of the Shahe River, delighting all local residents and guests of the village. Tour guides always offer tourists to touch the bark / bypass three times clockwise / hug the trunk and make a wish, implying that the tree will affect its implementation, as it happened to the heroine of an ancient legend, who wanted to marry the evil old prince. The girl came to the tulip tree in the night and wished that this fate would pass her. In the morning, when the poor bride returned home, her parents joyfully allowed her to marry the poor shepherd whom she loved very much.
