The green collar of trees and bushes tightly envelops the old part of the city. Where, at the beginning of the 19th century, the medieval rotten city walls were a shelter for the criminal world and an ideal environment for the growing rat population, a garden was created full of trees, colorful flower beds and lush lawns. In the morning, foggy, at noon, when the rays of the sun break through the branches and leaves of the trees, in the evening, when the lanterns light up along the alleys, at each time of the day Plants look different and are a deep breath that calms the heart of the busy city.
The botanical garden of the Jagiellonian University is a real pearl hidden among the high walls, an oasis of peace, a paradise for lovers of flowers, cacti and interesting botanical specimens. You can hide here for a moment and forget that you are in the heart of a busy and rushing city. On less than 10 hectares, the plant kingdom has its palace here. Massive columns of oaks and maples form the largest chamber, the Arboretum. Alleys lined with floral carpets lead to glass houses, where in tropical temperatures exotic plants create a cabinet of curiosities. The fact that it is the oldest botanical garden in Poland is honestly assured by Pedunculate Jagiellonian Oak, which has 230 springs behind it. It is worth choosing a slightly less traditional walking tour in Krakow and choosing just such places.
