  • 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.

Where to stay in Krakow

Krakow ranks among one of Europe's increasingly popular tourist destinations, which is reflected in the rising costs of comfortable lodgings. The best hotels are concentrated in and around the historical old town, where five-star luxury comes at a very steep price. Old town hotels place you just steps from fine shops and restaurants, as well as the city's main museums and galleries. However, if your trip involves a tight budget, avoid the central district and check out mid-range hotels and economical hostels in one of the outlying neighborhoods.
