“The Planty”
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.

“beautiful in the autumn!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

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”
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.

“Beautiful park around the historic district”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

In October visiting this vast park is a delight. All the trees become gold first and then bronze and the leaves form a soft and sophisticated carpet all around the historic district.

It is a great place to go read a book, have a walk with your dog or make a picnic.

“Pleasant green zone with a historical twist”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Every big city should have a pleasant zone like this. It more or less encloses the old town. And the reason it's there is that a medieval wall and moat were once there. I only "discovered" the Planty the next to last day of my visit. I recommend a visitor find it quickly and use it when appropriate.
