These botanical gardens are quite pretty, but not as beautiful as the botanical gardens in Wroclaw. There were few people when we visited and the place was tranquil.

When we eventually found the entrance of these Botanical gardens it started to rain.The entry fee was only10 PLN which was very cheap for two people.The paths we found were very slippy to walk on with water lodge on them so you have to watch your step. Some of the beds looked tired and could do with a good make... More

We stayed in the Botanical Gardens for about an hour. It was not anything special for us because we viewed the gardens just as "normal gardens". But for every plant lover or a professional biologist this is probably a paradise. The entrance fee is low, so no worries.

My Wife and I visited on the 20 September and despite the Autumn feel there was still a lot of colour and interesting plants and flowers to see. We certainly took home ideas too for plants and planting. The green houses too with their wide range of exotic florna and fauna were amazing and with information in English as well... More

We're at the end of the growing season but this has clearly had some full on displays that I wish I had seen. The hothouses remain of interest and the gardens offer cool, quiet nooks for contemplation. We had planned on seeking out the usual café but there doesn't appear to be one - just covered areas with vending machines... More

Very pleasant for a Sunday morning walk, I think the entrance was 15PLN per adult, less for concessions and free for young children. Though somewhat lacking of information on the different plant species and as normal there was the smattering of bored, miserable looking staff, which no public sector attraction here would be complete without.

This is a lovely place to visit on a summers day to take the many paths and see beautiful flowers/plants. There are several information boards and maps of the garden so you can follow that or just wander along the many paths at your will. A bonus are the many seats throughout the gardens where you can rest or admire... More

A bit off the beaten path in Krakow but worth the effort, 700m east of central trainstation Glowny. Entrance fee 8 zlotys/pp (2€). The park is well kept with the exception of a portion of the park which was overgrown ( was it intentionally left overgrown ?). From outside the 2 glass greenhouses are a bit neglected but inside you’ll... More

Magnificent. Lovely . Peaceful. It was a marvelous few hours spent in a very lovely and relaxing atmosphere. A terrific change from the overload of people and artwork and historical facts that are every place you look.
