Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beautiful during both day and night. Frequently busy as it is a way into the main town. Oddly felt safe, even at night time as there are still plenty of people about.

Planty Park is the wonderful large park that encircles the wonderful Old Town.
A really pleasant walk ,the park has nice pathways that offer great views of the famous castle and the innumerable churches that are dotted throughout Krakow ,in the park are lots of statues,fountains and places of interest plus there's a smattering of pubs,bars and cafe's, all in all its a wonderful park to check out if you're planning a holiday to Krakow.

If you do any sightseeing on foot you'll walk around this park as a natural part of getting around, so it's not something you'll need to pin on a map as a "must see".
It's a ring right around the old town, broken only in the southern section by Wawel Castle, and it's a good way to circle round and avoid the sometimes cloying crowds in the centre.

Nice Park and walkway
Could do with some lighting as evenings feel a bit eerie
Nice models, sculptures along with plenty of benches to sit and take in the beauty

Planty is one of the largest city parks which encircles the Old Town, where the Medieval city walls used to stand until the early 19th century. It is beautiful every season of the year. I reccommend to walk it all around.

Quite a large park, a great place to walk enjoying surroundings, sculptures or just having a break on a bench.

I am guessing that I live on another planet given most of the reviews but this was average for me. The park surrounds the Old Town. Yes there are historical monuments amongst other things and you get a good view of various buildings around the Old Town. Your likely to walk all or part of it whilst visiting the many tourist attractions. There are benches along the way. I am guessing it depends when you go. There was grass, trees and a lot of bird droppings but nothing that made it a 'pretty' park. Having said this, I walked part of it early morning when it was snowing a little and this was nice and cosy. When I went back another day, it just felt ordinary to me. It was a nice breath of fresh air to get away from the busy Old Town but I just don't think it was stunning or a must.

This is a beautiful greenery, surrounding the old town of Krakow and provides a tranquil oasis from the nearby hectic streets.
We strolled through it just after it snowed, and it was lovely.

Planty is a very pleasant park surrounding the Old Town. It has lots of nice paths for walking and covered with big trees. Previously the area was occupied by the defensive moats surrounding the city, which were filled in during the 1800s and eventually made into the current wonderful green space.

This lush park encircles Krakow Old Town.

It was once the site of the city’s 13th-century defensive fortifications. During Austrian occupation in the first half of the 19th century, the moats were filled for a park.

This three-kilometer park is filled with trees, flowers, benches, and historic monuments.
