4.5/5 based on 950+ reviews on the web
Enjoy the idyllic scenery at Planty Park, famous for well-tended floral displays, small lakes, fountains, and statues. Following the line of the city walls, which protected this part of the city until the 19th century, the park is composed of thirty distinct gardens. Established in the 1820s and expanded over the years, the park now covers 21 hectares (52 acres) and stretches more than 4 km (2.5 mi). Stroll the scenic walkway for a shady retreat from the busy streets. Plan to see Planty Park and other attractions that appeal to you using our Krakow trip itinerary builder.

  • Lovely park around the old city. Many great trees and benches to sit and people watch. Nice and close to the Old Town 
  • Green belt surrounding city center, which offers shade during hot summer days, benches to rest, few spots to buy some snacks and sometimes hosts outdoor exhibitions. Nice place to rest in between sigh...  read more »
  • Perfect, right in the city centre, a beautiful park bicycle path is a must-see tourist spot

  • A great green park around the stara miasto. Cool place to walk on all seasons of year
  • Nice central park near the old town, perfect to have a walk in the green or to relax on a summer day.
  • It's a nice green tree-lined circular park surrounding the old city. I like to walk around it after a meal.
  • Surrounding Krakow market centre is planty, if you are a tourist visiting then it's great to visit and just relax a bit while looking at some of the older parts of Krakow (like the barbican). There are also good ice cream ships and cars near by too.
  • Nice, well looked after place
