“A green route around the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

A nice alternative to the busy streets of Krakow. Somewhere to sit and relax. If you are inclined, it makes a 4km jogging route around the entire city.

If you like running, do not miss the opportunity to see Krakow in the morning light. Take a run around the Planty (4 km).

“Walk, walk, walk”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

Planty is just a park :) but it is constructed exactly around the whole Old Town, where previously the city walls were build. They were removed in XIX century and now you can hand around under the trees. Silent and peaceful despite the city traffic nearby. Especially beautiful and colorful in autumn.

“Green, green”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

This is a park of only about 100 mts wide which stretches in a horse-shoe shape aroun the old city. Very relaxing and serves to keep traffic noises away from the mainly pedestrianised area inside.
