“What a great park to have in the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

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.

“Green Space”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

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.

“Loved This Feature of the City!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2014

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.

“Lovely way to see parts you might not otherwise reach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

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
