    Very nice small zoo but with a lot of animals from birds, tigers, giraffes, elephants, lions, jaguar, monkeys, donkeys, goats etc. The children loved it. Would have been better if the restaurant was open, but we went in October so may open in the summer months.

    Excellent! Very pretty greenhouses and flower beds. Many interesting plants and cute ducklings. Had a coffee with lively quiche and cake at the café too. Spend a good three hours in total.

    Went to Papugarnia Amazonia yesterday and really enjoyed it. Loads of different parrots to feed and watch, the girl who takes you in is absolutely lovely and really knows about and cares about the birds. Definitely a worth while visit!

    7 PLN which is roughly £1.20. Only a ten minute attraction but the number of stairs were very funny going down and worth a pound. If here after a few beers - probably not a good idea. The bar boat just outside is a perfect accompaniment.

    The Royal Way is a walkway that was previously used for royal processions and to this day is one of the best ways to see the big sights of the old city. Starting in the north you will see:
    St Florians Church
    The Barbakan
    St Florians Gate
    Rynek Glowny (Main Market Square)
    Cloth Hall
    Wawel Castle / Cathedral

    The walk at a slow pace would take around 40-50 minutes but naturally you will want longer for stopping at the sights, taking photos etc. It is all well sign posted as well but a very simple route in itself as it is essentially a straight line.

    One of the best and smartest Playground for children. It was for me a great amazing that such concept and initiative was just from local (with fond from EU).

    We had such a great time skating on ice with my daughter while it was snowing. They provided(at a charge) skates, penguins and lockers. After we had coffee at the small cute cafe at the front of the ring. Jordan park is beautiful.

    We combined this with a trip to the Mound. I wish we had a map before we headed out, though, because we didn't know where we were going. The trails were well-maintained and woods were very pretty. I would go back!

    In case you are too tired from crowded streets and cars, park will help you to enjoy and have a relaxed time. Park is very huge so it is suitable for safe biking for kids. Near there is M1 Mall so it is possible to merge shopping and relax time.

    An extensive and beautiful park, with lovely wildlife. An oasis just outside the city centre. I doubt tourists usually visit, I'd recommend a stroll.

    We rented bikes at "Bike Trip" on Zwierzyniecka Street .near Debnicki Bridge. You begin with marvelous view of the Wawel Castle complex just to your east, and then head westward toward Tyniec. Except for one brief section when you pass through a small village you are on a dedicated bike path all the way to the Benedictine Abbey at Tyniec (about 10kms). En route you can glimpse numerous interesting landmarks including the Church of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary on a hill to the north, various fine homes and villas, an artificial river and rapids built for kayakers and of course much lovely flora. I have seen many stunning pictures of the Abbey but they all seem to be taken from up river and you will be approaching it from down river in Krakow. You can get the "beauty shot" by following a footpath a few hundred yards up river from the Abbey - definitely easier to walk than ride. There is a small area with vendors selling simple foods and beverages where the bike path ends below the abbey. We chose not to go inside the abbey although we did visit a cemetery up the hill and across the road from it. All in all it made for a very pleasant excursion and, as nice as Krakow is, it is nice to get away from the crowds for a few hours.

    This little park has a lot of artwork situated throughout along with gravestones and memorials of eminent people. The main entrance has a statue of pope john paul which is very poignant. The only downside are the small number of drunks/vagrants that sit around all day.

    We stumbled across this beautiful peaceful garden space called the Professors Garden. For centuries it has been a garden tended by the university professors. Amongs its features are historical markers remembering the many university professors in Krakow and nearby that were incarcerated during World War II. A solemn remembrance. In addition, there are interactive models of five scientific instruments, all related to the Jagiellonian University next door.
