To the east of Krakow’s Old Town, you’ll find a more than two hundred year old botanic garden. Spread over 9.6 hectares, this place was established because botany students at the Jagiellonian University needed a test garden. Flowers, medicinal herbs, orchids and endangered plant species can be found here. In spring and summer the attraction fairly bursts with vivid colors. But it’s still worth visiting at other times thanks to the climate controlled greenhouses and the garden museum. The great oak tree here is 300 years old, a last remnant of the ancient forests that once covered this land. Check the garden website for lecture and event schedules.

  • 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.
