“Ok walk. ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

I thought this was more than it is. It is a very thin "green belt" around the old town. Pleasant walk with some nice buildings, but nothing to get too excited about.

“A great place to chill.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

When the tourist vibe gets to be too much try a walk in the Planty, a ring park which surrounds the old town of Krakow. It was created when the Hapsburgs tore down the old city wall and filled in the moat. It's a wonderful green buffer between the city and its tourist core.

“The Planty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Nice and delightful gardens and great that they are available for the locals to have somewhere to enjoy a quiet place. However I feel sad that they took down the old Medieval walls and replaced it will the park, I feel sure the city walls would have been magnifcient, if other areas that are left of the walls are anything to go by.

This park looks amazing in the autumn with all those colourful leaves all around! A good way to escape for a moment from the city noise!

“An Autumnal Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

The Planty encircles Old Krakow and is a very beautiful part of the city. In October the trees and the area is just too stunning for words. The golds, reds and yellows of the changing trees give a beautiful background to a nice romantic stroll. It's definitely worth a small detour to walk through the Planty to get from place to place.

Krakow is such a beautiful city and this is what helps to make it so.
