A lovely little green space just outside the walls of the Main Square and therefore away from the hustle and bustle. It's a nice walk that allows you to come across a lot of the smaller sights in Krakow. It was really pleasant to walk through in February, and I imagine it must be really nice to spend time here...

This is a lovely park enclosing the old Town of Krakow. A most beautiful place in February but it must be awesome in Autumn or Summer. Excellent for walkers , runners and dog lovers alike . Many of the major tram stops are just outside the park.

This review is not so much about Planty itself (which was lovely in Feb and must an idyll in summer) but about the fantastic information lady in the tourist info booth on Sat 11 Sun 12 & Mon 13 Feb. We went in to see her three times in our short visit to Krakow and she was beyond helpful, friendly,... More

I've been to Krakow around 12 times now, in snow, rain and sun, and I always walk through the Planty. It is the most beautiful park whatever the weather. You can sit and people watch or just stroll through and feel encapsulated in the bubble, away from the hubbub of noise and activity that is Krakow. Discovered 2 little wooden... More

On our three day visit to Kraków we often left the area of the old town and strolled through Planty Park. Few people around and lots to discover as you walk through this area of grass and trees. Lots and lots of benches to sit on as well.

It's covered with ice so it's really beautiful!! It's not just trees so walk along the park and you'll find a bride with a small lake which also filled with ice right now. It's near Barbican and opposite to Effes Kebab. Really nice kebab btw.

In January the Platny is almost deserted so it's possible to run to your hearts content free from hassle

This park used to be a moat. It is now a two and half mile grass and treed park that circles Old Town. It's a perfect place for a stroll or for a bike ride.

When you are tired, you want to sit and rest or you want to chill and talk with friends, it will be a great place to do it. The location is perfect - next to the Old Town and very close to train or bus stations.

Planty Park surrounds Old Town Krakow. Take a stroll in the lovely park to explore the places of interests, cafes and restaurants. Sit on one of the well placed benches, people watch, or simply while away the time.
