Historic Walking Area Tourist Spot
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.

  • wonderful green space. Very pleasant to sit and relax after walking in the old city. Well maintained public toilets are a plus too
  • Good place to hide from sun on a hot day. However, there's still to much traffic noise to enjoy it fully.
  • A very cool place to hang out. Lot's of students. Lot's of locals stroll around
  • Beautiful walk around the park. Takes an hour or two but definitely worth it.
  • Beautiful park around Kraków Old Town, where it used to be the defensive double wall.
