Krakow

Botanical Garden

  ul. Kopernika 27 ,   Old Town          (+48) 12 663 36 35     16 Sep 2020

Covering almost 10 hectares, Poland’s oldest botanical gardens date from 1783 and offer a decidedly relaxing daytime escape from the city. Extensive flora-filled paths wind between fountains, herb and rose gardens, lily-padded ponds, and a 250-year-old oak tree - the last remnant of primaeval forests which once covered the entire region. Arguably (but don't tell the botanists we said this) the most striking feature of the park is the 'Victoria' greenhouse complex which dates back to the park's opening and was renovated and reopened in July 2020; inside you'll find all manner of exotic and tropical flora, including a macabre collection of carnivorous plants. A series of outdoor classical music concerts takes place in the warmer months, plus other occasional events. A great place for a romantic rendezvous or finding some peace and quiet away from the crowds. Note that this is a seasonal attraction, and closed from mid-October until mid-April.
