Kraków Outdoor Attractions

Kraków is full of outdoor attractions, parks, gardens, and public green spaces - most notably the 'Planty,' which rings the Old Town where the city's moat once existed, the 'Błonia,' a huge undeveloped tract of land right in the city centre, and the city's famous 'mounds.' In addition to these, the botanical gardens and the Wisła riverbanks, if you're looking to spend the day outdoors, consider a day exploring Salwator or hiking in Wolski Forest. For more urban adventures, Podgórze is full of evocative outdoor attractions on the way to the site of the old Płaszów concentration camp. Slightly out of town, Ojców is the perfect easy day-trip from Kraków for hiking in beautiful surroundings, cycling enthusiasts will find the ride along the river to Tyniec Monastery ideal for spending a day on a bike, or try a trip to Kryspinów for a day at the beach (see Further Afield).
