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. Add Planty Park to your Krakow travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Krakow travel route builder app .

  • a huge park that runs along buildings typically Slavic Poland, which must be very nice in the right season. In the beginning of December, it is not possible to take advantage of the benches made available... the cold is too spicy.

  • A nice walk in the park at night is an awesome sight. If you are lucky you will greatly be entertained by a performance by an arts group. Was lucky to hear a harmonious performance of drum beaters at work.
  • It's a unique circular park around the old town of kraków. It's full of cyclists and pedestrians and despite the fact that it's not the best place to run, I love doing some jogging there. Some outdoor expo ans true life make this park special. Day and night it contributes to the soul of kraków and is a good reference point for lost wanderers.
  • I couldn't live without Planty park! Green haven in the very centre of the city. Birds, flowers, shaded benches... :) Summer would be unbearable if you couldn't get shelter there.
  • Well maintained. No litter laying about. I think in the height of the summer when trees etc are in full bloom it would be so much nicer too
  • Nice park surrounding the old town. On a sunny day it’s really nice to sit down on the many seats and just relax.
