Dzieci na placu zabaw wśród drzew



Hoping for a beautiful, golden autumn, and also because many children’s attractions are currently closed, we suggest taking a look at the following article with the ranking of the top 10 playgrounds in Krakow. It lists places where children and their parents can spend their time safely, outdoors and enjoy some movement.


There are plenty of playgrounds in Krakow. They differ a lot, some are new and wonderful, others have a few or even several years old and are still the place of fun for the little ones. They are often created with an idea, a guiding theme. Of course, the main theme of our royal city is the motif of the dragon. Our favourite sites among the playgrounds in Krakow are mainly dragon squares. They compete in the ideas of designers and often delight with their dragon-like constructions. But Krakow can offer not only dragons squares - there are many other playgrounds that are interesting and worth visiting.
