Love this place been several times, always seem to go on the day the museum is closed. Now I know it is only open on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, I must have gone on the other 4 days in the past. Lovely gardens with a small lake. Some really good photos opportunities. Nice on a hot sunny day to sit... More

The Krakow botanical garden is very nice. It's well kept and has a wide selection of sooooo many species from the vegetable kingdom. You feel good while visiting! This garden comes second after the botanical garden in Wroclaw - still a very honorable performance!

Lovely Gardens I believe these gardens have been revamped during the last 12 months and they are definitely worth visiting. They are about 15 mins walk from the centre of Krakow. It cost us 13 Zloty for two people, peanuts. There are two big glass houses, various lilly ponds, and a great deal of flower beds. It is quite a... More

It is easy to get to the Botanical gardens in Krakow (no 2 tram to Lubisc St. then walk) and it is cheap to get in. It is quite wonderful there. The gardens are laid out so that they never seem crowded and the visitors respect and love the place so it is peaceful. The gardens are right near a... More

Large botanic gardens about a 20 minute walk from the city centre containing numerous spring flowering plants, colourful rock plants, lakes and ponds, and a couple of well stocked greenhouses. I’m sure the gardens will be even more spectacular in the summer. Visitors are given a map on entering, which enables to better plan how to get around the gardens.... More

It's a beautiful garden to spend couple of hours in a sunny day (or even half the day if you are with company). It looks so nice after renovation and re-opened last month! It's highly recommended to visit, especially if you love nature!

I would agree with all your negative reviews that the garden isn't extremly beautiful. but it has many rare things which I, as a biology student appreciate! Some things You would say that they are the herbs, are in fact the exceptional species. and I liked the glass house! :)

We walked from the city centre to the gardens, only to find them closed until April 2015. Just be aware if you arrive before this date that you'll be disappointed.
