A lovely park that circles the old town of Stare Miasto. Very clean and very well designed. Lots of little monuments to see as you make your way around. Entering the old town from any direction you cant miss it. Take time to stroll for a while. You wont regret it.

This is a lovely park. Very quiet. Although it was April the temperatures were quite cold in krakow but there were a lot of green on the trees. Will be great in the summer. Would imagine it's a favorite for joggers.

This is a great park that circles the old town of Krakow. If you like parks you'll like this one. It's full of monuments and smaller gardens and I was particularly impressed with how clean and tidy it was. For me it was great for a run as it's over 4k to run round. Enjoy!

Nice park closed to the old town, with many benches and nice trees and flowers. Good place to stretch legs and relax after whole day walks.

You could spend hours wandering around this park and we have. It is beautiful and depending on the season there are always lovely flowers and plants. There are lots of seats for tired tourists.

So easy to have a peaceful walk in the middle of the city. Spring is coming and surely the trees are begining to show their flowers making this place even more magical. Totally should mention one of the biggest and oldest trees in the city, one close to the Archeology Muzeum. Best thing ther!

Apparently you can walk it all in an hour or so however, we simply nipped in and out of the park on a daily basis on our travels around the city. The noise of the roosting crows in late evening make it feel very surreal and thoughts of Alfred Hitchcock's Birds did spring to mind. Planty Park is very well... More

Nice space that is actually part of the old wall of the city. It is a great space for a walk or to just sit and enjoy the slow pace of the city.
