We walked all around the city center through this park - laid out where the city walls used to be. The trees are nice and old, and give a wonderful shady area to cool off on hot summer days.

The Planty was created when the old city walls were torn down and replaced with a park that is a quiet green zone between old town Krakow and the rest of the city. IF you want to get away from the busy streets as wou walk from place to place, this is the best route to take. Benches are plentiful... More

Beautiful place to stroll around. Lots of people; bikers and walkers, locals and tourists. I did some nice morning run through the park. At night, there are bars/cafes open nearby.

Whenever you are entering Krakow Old Town you nearly always pass through Planty Park as it almost circles fully around the centre. In fact you should take a long stroll just to get the feel of the old town. The planty are seasonal so change throughout the year. Enjoy.

Beautiful walking park. Used to be a moat all around the Old Town square. I always enjoy seeing locals in their neighborhoods....bustling from here to there and there - makes me feel part of the community and there's plenty of bikes and pedestrians, beautiful trees and benches. You can walk through the park to get to many of the popular... More

Planted on the site of the old medieval walls,the Planty Gardens are a nice way to walk say from the Barbican Tower to the entrance to Wawel Castle. It does'nt take that long to do and there are plenty of benches for a rest and/or picnic lunch. Like park areas anywhere it might be best avoided late at night,but you... More

Pleasant area defining the "Old Town", and a useful spot to sit and reat the feet after pounding the streets.

Not the greatest park you will ever walk through, but it helps to stitch the boundary of Krakow old town centre together with their other open areas. It also provides an opportunity to walk though something other than City streets

Not much to see here, just a green, park area around central Krakow. It is useful as a tracker to stop getting lost!

Lovely to walk through but be prepared for the cyclists that swerve in and out of the pedestrians and don't slow down much either
