About me

Hi! Welcome to Complete City Guides!

Complete City Guides mascot logo

My name is Patrick, I'm originally from Sydney (Australia) but grew up in England (my second home) - and I love exploring cities (and writing about it!)

I work online in marketing, which gives me the opportunity to travel around the world full time.

So while I am away, I keep this blog updated with full travel info. I tend to stay in a city for a few months at a time, to really get to know it - then I write guides on it.

Krakow Parks and Outdoor Activities

Krakow is a small city with a big population, and lots of parks.

The most popular is Planty Park, which circles the old town area. It replaced the old city walls in the early 1820s. There is a nice guide to walking through Planty Park here.

Another nice park and outdoors area that is close to the city center (10-15 min walk from square) is Blonia Park. It means 'Meadow' in Polish, and is a huge open area that is often full of runners and inline skaters (along the pavement/sidewalk). It is in the middle of the two football grounds - Cracovia's Stadium and Wisła Krakow's stadium.
