Bednarski Park

Opened with great fanfare at the end of the 19th century, the park's founder Wojciech Bednarski was reportedly carried around like a winning quarterback while newspapers from as far away as St. Petersburg applauded the park's establishment. Though the park itself doesn't offer much more than a partially paved path to walk on, this is one of the most beautiful, captivating natural spaces in Kraków with limestone cliffs, over one hundred different species of tree and the remains of an 18th century fortification. Covering eight and half hectares, Bednarski Park is lush and wild with trails winding everywhere, in turns shadowy and chimerical, or open with fine overviews of the city from its various ridges.
