In a small, inconspicuous forest located on the hill in North Krakow is a secret spot where everyone finds something for themselves. This park is a place where children can play, people can run or cycle or just walk. The small, quiet place is situated in the middle of the big living area of the Nowa Huta. It is Mistrzejowice fort – a defense sector of the historical Krakow Fortress.
Mistrzejowice Fort was built in the years 1895 – 1897, during the modernization of the fortress of Krakow. It is a small fort that was mainly used as warehouse. Today the fort is largely destroyed. Nevertheless it magnificently fits into the landscape of a park with planted trees.
This is my favorite spot to go for a run. The steep hill all the way to the park gives a good dose of warm up. Many paths in the park lead upwards in different directions and thus giving you various modes of workout. The shadow of numerous trees protect you from the strong rays of the sun. It is silent, mystical, just the place to reset yourself.
