  • The Botanical Garden of Cracow is within easy walking distance from downtown crossing piazza Mariacki, which is next to the market square. The entrance is free of charge but very little thing. The garden is fairly large and can boast a great variety of flowers and plants. Great for a relaxing walk in the snow.

  • Smell the flowers, exotic trees, kumkające frog-all this creates a unique atmosphere of beauty, joy and rest. The same entrance to the garden relaxes; You can forget about everyday things and leave them behind the gateway. It is also a kind of cultural center; There are concerts and various events associated with the Festival Saint gardens. There are also two palmiarnie. Tickets: adults £ 9, children £ 5, family £ 25. The garden is closed during the winter season: from October to mid-April.

  • Entrance hard to find but once you do find it it is well worth a visit. About £2 entrance fee which includes the greenhouses. Well maintained and still very colourful even in October. Plants are well ...  more »

  • A little difficult to find the entrance if you use Google Maps or the local signs. Enter through the university gate (27 ) . The entrance to the gardens is on the right side of the courtyard. The glass houses are fantastic. We spent well over 3 hours there.
  • Must see on tourist route in krakow. Good to go during the daylight. Once a year on museum night you can go for free and check nature with some music. Very good experience.
  • It was my favorite place to ditch school in warm spring months as a wild teenager;)) Please don't tell on me;)) Lovely place for drawing and water colors, contemplation, photos (and trying first cigarette or playing games with kids and so on;)) lol anyways it's still lovely on pictures;)))))))))
  • Very easy to miss the way in. Look out for the "Ogród Botaniczny" blue nameplate on the railings right beside a gated entry to a university building with a small half barrier just inside. Go through and turn right, where the entrance (you need to pay) is. Very pleasant walk around, and everything is labelled! Plenty of seats to sit upon and reflect.
  • It has some really nice quiet spots and a couple of really beautiful exotic greenhouses. Take note that the entrance can be paid only with cash.
