Fantastic spot to swim and sunbathe minutes from central Krakow. No amenities, but take a picnic with you. Also if you can a foam mat to lie on (ground is very hard). Best tram stop is Norymberska.

Beautiful, clear water to swim in. You can also hire a kayak for very cheap! It does cost to enter (12zl) but it is worth the expense. Make sure to wear good shoes as it is very rocky and there is smashed glass in places....More

A wonderful place to see during a sunny day. Totally unexpected, despite its beauty, still many people don't know it. However there isn't much place to sit and chill.
