Planty Park - Review
Overview of Planty Park
Twenty one thousand square meters of parkland stretch in a narrow band between of Krakow Old Town and the rest of the city. Circling Old Town, it’s about 3 kilometres long. The park used to be site of the castle moats, which were filled up. Inside, you’ll find the usual city park fare - many smaller gardens, flowers, fountains, pretty lamp-posts, monuments, and ponds. Pretty trees cast their shade over these, making the park a cool retreat from the city bustle. Couples are a common sight in the evenings, serenaded by street musicians. Some of the sights to watch out for on your walk include:
- The Wavel Garden
- A 17th-century Carmelite monastery that was once a prison.
- The Krakow Barbican
- St. Florian's Gate
- The Franciscan Church
- The University Garden
- Bunkier Sztuki Art Gallery and Bar
- The 19th-century Post Office
- Chopin's Piano Water Fountain, a lovely and unusual looking sculpture on the western arc of the park.
Technically the whole walk should take only an hours, but feel free to lose yourself in the cute cafes and the flowering gardens.

Planty Park, Krakow Reviews
Very nice green area surrounding the perimeter of the old town and some of the walls of the old town are still standing and some of the main gate ways.
“My place to walk..” - In this old town the is this park. I have walk this way around a lot of time, and every time I see new things.. I like to sit down and see the daily Krakow from people that come this way. This park is around the old town and you can run it, walk it and even on a city bike. This is a walk in time and I love this place... This is Krakow
Great place, welcome shade, making a much more pleasant way to get around Krakow during the hot weather. Kept clean, but watch out for the bicycles.
Love this gem in Krakow. It's the perfect place to come to get out of the heat in the old town. It's also great to just chill out and people watch.
It's a huge park where one just can walk through it or ride their bikes, chill and relax on the benches and watch people walking by. Read a book, listen too music or simply enjoy the nature. The park is not far from the market square Glowny and easy reachable by foot.
