Ogród Botaniczny Kraków
Botanical Garden Kraków
The 10 hectares with thousands of colourful plants is an excellent place for a stroll between the flowerbeds, the alpinarium or the arboretum. Here you can learn about the world of flora and find peace in the heart of the city. In addition to herbivorous specimens, which can cleverly capture an arthropod for themselves, or even a vertebrate, you can admire ancient sagacious animals, which date back 280 million years ago to the Palaeozoic era. They are said to be living fossils, and the collection in the Kraków Botanical Garden is one of the largest and oldest in our part of Europe. Kraków can proudly boast of 60 species, some of which still reproduce. The orchid collection of 500 species and varieties and valuable plants, such as tea, coffee and cocoa, are also worth seeing.
