Park Debnicki Krakow

Park Debnicki – An oasis by the Vistula river

I discovered this charming park while going on a long walk with my sister who was visiting me from Greece. I was surprised that I was not aware it was even there but I guess that is part of its charm.

In the park there is a beautiful neo-Renaissance palace which unfortunately does not accept visitors. When I looked up more information regarding the park’s history, I found out that the family who owns this palace gave Krakow the land for the park about a century ago.

But that is not all that I discovered in this park. At the centre, I found the sculpture “Rock Notes” which belongs to the “musical collection of sculptures” by Bronislaw Chromy. You can see more of his sculptures here.

For me, this park is quite romantic because of the wooden bridges, the flower pergola and the small bookshelf that is there for park visitors. The terrain is hilly, which really complements the wide variety of plants and trees.

If you decide to visit make sure to look for the QR codes that engage you to a pirate game around the park which is ideal for younger and older children. 😉
