Kraków, Poland

Wolski Forest

For those who prefer running in an expansive green space, head a few km west towards the Wolski Forest, a massive park alongside the Vistula river with over 22 miles (35 km) of earthen trails. The forest boasts, a zoo, a castle, and a historic burial mound.

There are dense forest paths and a few more open spaces and allées. Naturally, choose your own route. We’ve mapped a 7 km (4.4 mile) loop, featuring the central paths of Vlastimila Hofmana going out, and the Aleja Jerzego Waszyngtona coming back, on either side of the Kościuszko Mound.

Note there isn’t a good map to Wolski online, so check in at the Ranger Station to plan your route, and it’s a good idea to carry a GPS. For a longer tour, you can combine the Wolski Forest trails with the Krakowski Błonia and Park Jordana route.
