Perhaps the Planty is more sweeping in high Spring but if you want peace and quiet the Botanical Gardens are a fine place to relax (and, of course, to whisper sweet nothings with the apple of your eye.) To get there, stroll down Copernicus street - which provides a good walk in itself with its panoply of churches and lines of trees (this was the ancient route to Poland's great eastern city, Lwow). Amongst many natural beauties one finds a sturdy old oak that has stood here for some 500 years. Legend has it that King Boleslas the Big-Moustached hid here during the Swedish Deluge. O.K, that's made up, but it is true that Poland's first hot air balloon was launched from the astonomical observatory here in 1784. (Open May-Oct. 9-7p.m).

Piękny, różnorodny, oryginalny i wyjątkowy w centrum miasta.
A great place to visit and to spend time contemplating (and, for instance) reading.
cisza i spokój w centrum miasta
Super miejsce do spędzenia wolnych chwil w zatłoczonym mieście .
Uwielbiam to miejsce! Jedno z Ładniejszych w Krakowie.
Lwow is ancient Ukrainian city occupied by Polish (wiki'll hel)
beautiful relaxing place...spent a few hours there last Monday after a week of walking around Krakow. Sit by the lake and just watch the wildlife.
A little oasis in Cracow. Bring a pack-lunch and spend a morning or afternoon there. Plenty of lovley planted areas to relax in and a couple of glass houses with very interesting plants in. Well worth the short walk from the town square
Absolutely gorgeous in spring. Bring a camera or a book and spend the day here - the entrance is very cheap and while it's not the biggest garden i've been to, it's absolutely gorgeous and relaxing.
Like Krakow we found the gardens to be both beautiful and relaxing. I would recommend a visit to anyone interested in plants, well worth the short walk from the old city.
