If you are a fan of long walks like myself, then you will be happy to know that in Krakow you can find Poland’s longest park. I usually visit the part that is closest to my apartment but Royal Mlynowka stretches from Mydlniki to Slowackiego Avenue and has a total length of 7.4 km! The Royal Mlynowka is a promenade, which is a remnant of the former Mlynowka river, which once supplied water to the city of Krakow.

Luckily, I live close to the part that is rugged and less visited. I love that even though I am so close to the city centre, I can quickly access a more isolated and natural area. In my opinion, spring and autumn are the two seasons when this park is at its most beautiful. When I come for a walk here, I always stop at the same spot where there is a beautiful view of the Wolski forest, Pilsudski mound and Kosciuszko mound.

If you decide to visit, you can start from different places, but I suggest getting off at the “Zakliki” bus stop where Balicka str. meets Zakliki z Mydlnik str. There you will find Hotel Zakliki and from there you can walk almost 3 km to get to the “Bronowice Male” bus terminal.
