“One of Krakov's disappointments”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

Being gardeners this was high on our list to visit. It was perhaps not a great time of year to visit or the garden is being redeveloped. It was a bit run down/the museum was closing when we arrived although the glasshouse was pretty good. Would not go back.

“Peaceful near the City”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013

On a very hot Friday we walked to the gardens. They are not well signposted - a makeshift sign on the right was all there was. The gardens are split into distinct areas i.e. arboretum, medicinal, collections. The ice-cream vendor at the far end was very welcome. Regrettably the glasshouses are not open on Fridays. Gardens are very well maintained but toilets a bit below par.

“Definitely worth finding this little gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

It would definitely be worth your time trying to find this little gem in Krakow, it is only a short distance from the centre but is not too crowded with tourist so you can relax and check out the amazing glasshouses

“This one takes you by suprise😊”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

We walked from the Stare Miasto, beautiful walk, not far.
This place takes you by surprise, it is unpretentious, but after you enter you will be amazed at the beauty and tranquility here.
I am so happy we came.

“A beautiful garden in the mid of the city”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

If you have some free time and you are tired just go there and relax. The garden is most beautiful in spring time, when magnolia trees are full of flowers. There is pond, big green house with tropical flowers and trees. Students are coming there to study books in calm atmosphere.
