Beautifully kept gardens with a mixture of plants, shrubs and trees. Everything was labelled and the paths were flat. There were a number of wheelchair users. Very impressive glass houses.

We're at the end of the growing season but this has clearly had some full on displays that I wish I had seen. The hothouses remain of interest and the gardens offer cool, quiet nooks for contemplation. We had planned on seeking out the usual...More

Very pleasant for a Sunday morning walk, I think the entrance was 15PLN per adult, less for concessions and free for young children. Though somewhat lacking of information on the different plant species and as normal there was the smattering of bored, miserable looking staff,...More

Yes there is a tram stop about 10 minutes walk away - faster if you are a quick walker! The stop we used was called Rondo Mogilskie - its actually located on a large roundabout and is served by several tram lines.
