“A peaceful haven”
Reviewed 9 May 2014

A nice place to chill and relax when visiting Krakow's beautiful and interesting sights. Especially because they are so accessible from these beautiful parks which circle the Old Town.

“Old city park”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

A city park walk which circles the old town and from it, you can wander up the side streets into market square. We did it on a Sunday afternoon and it seems like people dress up and stroll out with their families. It takes about 2 hours to complete at a steady pace with plenty of photo opportunities. Not all the trees are in bloom yet but the lilac is. A quiet place and the trams and roads are close but you don't seem to hear it.

“Planty area”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

Lovely place to stroll. Easy to navigate and exit for a bit of shopping or a coffee and back in again. Lots of local around as well.

“Nice place for a stroll”
Reviewed 26 April 2014

This is a nice park that runs around the outside of the oldest part of the city. We were there in the late fall, so it wasn't spectacular but I could see that it would be very lovely in spring and summer. It was clean and well lit at night.

“Lovely in parts”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

The Planty surrounds he city and provides a green space on the outskirts of the old parts. Some sections are lovely to walk through but others have less desirable features eg drinkers and people sleeping on benches. I would not be too keen to walk through the Planty after dark.
