This Botanical Garden area was just formal enough to be informative and yet with a slightly unstructured feel which to me gave it charm and softness. The water features were lovely with families of ducks skimming around, and lots of shade and light and colour....More

After walking around Krakow, this was a pleasant stop. There were beautiful flowers, bushes and trees. The trees provided some shade on a hot day. It's not a must see but nice if you're in the area.

Beautifully kept gardens with a mixture of plants, shrubs and trees. Everything was labelled and the paths were flat. There were a number of wheelchair users. Very impressive glass houses.

We have visited the garden yesterday. Beautiful and no tourists. Tram 19 stops in Rondo Mogliskie. From there 300 meters (take the tunnel, then the first left). Entrance is behind the red barrier.

Yes there is a tram stop about 10 minutes walk away - faster if you are a quick walker! The stop we used was called Rondo Mogilskie - its actually located on a large roundabout and is served by several tram lines.
