stayed across the road from the Planty - it is a pretty green belt around the old town and helped us to get our bearings wherever we were in the city

The planty surrounds the city and is a lovely green space in the centre of the city. Sadly some evidence of the past pollution on trees etc ( krakow was in the past the 3rd most polluted city in Europe) but we never experienced pollution but it was early in the year.

I love how the park surrounds the Old Town. It has nice large walkways so you can stroll or run if you are trying to get in exercise while on holiday. It's also a nice land mark to let you know you are leaving the old town. A beautiful place in the spring with the flowers and blooming trees.

The area which formed the city wall has been planted so that a park basically encircles the whole of the old city ... excellent planning. The locals walk and congregate in these green spaces giving this area a real community feel.

The park rings much of Old Town, is clean, and has broad paths which makes wandering easy. It made strolling around Krakow a pleasure. It felt, safe, too, especially during the day and into the early evening. Vendors offering drinks and bagel-like breads were a constant presence, so cheap snacks were easy to find.

This walk follows the path in the park created along the line of the old city walls. It's a lovely walk, taking round all sorts of things you might not otherwise notice if you just stuck to the main tourist areas. Nice in March, but must be lovely when the trees are out, or in autumn

It surrounds the city center and it is lovely in the spring and early autumn. Loads of colors and small bars with people playing live music.

Lovely park, great to sit and watch the world go by. Quite often, brides and grooms (oddly, not with the wedding guests!) visit here to have wedding photos taken as it's such a pretty location. Nice to watch such happy occasions.
