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).

  • I suspect not, to anyone not know what are the Planty Park. But-just in case-a wonderful park, in the heart of Krakow, Krakow old town around. Planty tempt and seduce with the peace and quiet at any time of the year. Of course, the King is here in spring, summer and autumn-when we can admire or awakening to life nature, or luxury summer Greens, or the magical colors of autumn. Here you will find a respite from the summer heat and crowds of tourists. Kraków Planty Park has a large number of benches-so no problem we can sit back, relax, read a book ...

  • Planty surround the oldest part of the city. This Park is located in the Centre of the beautiful city. After visiting the city you can quietly relax.

  • The Planty Park narrows down, bounds, and then points to the Centre of Krakow. It is a nice Park that gets very nice if covered with snow. My 4 stars are given by the snow conditions from me lived.

  • This is such a great way to walk to Wawel Castle from the old town. You hardly ever have to step out of the greenery, trees and gardens to get there. To keep it interesting, there are some seriously interesting statues to look at along the way. And going thru it during the first signs of autumn is pretty beautiful actually. i noticed hardly any homeless people or dog excrement. Well kept!
  • Very nice park close to the main square in Krakow. Beautiful in summer and during winter. Really nice place!
  • Place where I used to walk a lot as a child... Still didn't changed at all, one of the best places in Bialystok for romantic,and not only, walk.
  • The most famous Cracow park, iconic, placed in historic downtown, well known as Hyde Park in London and Central Park in New York. When you visit Cracow can't just skip it in your tourist schedule. Won't regret a minute spend there, highly recommend.
  • Lots of benches where you can chill and talk. The place is not only great for lazy walks any time of the year, but it is good for sports, such as jogging, cycling, skateboarding, rollerblading and similar. Pokemon GO trainers, take notice: there is a fantastic little pond with fountain near the Barbakan with 3 pokestops, most of the time loaded with lure.
