Krasinskich Park highlights

October 29th, 2007

The quality of Krasinkich Park is best described, I think, by its simple layout with paths that wind around or crisscross so you won’t have to double back during a long walk to explore all of the park. Also a plus is what I like to call K-Park’s sunshine-to-shade ratio (yes, I measure this!): the paths reach into shady tree areas and out across open fields in a way that leaves you only steps from one or the other at an spot along the routes.

While there are no cafés in Krasinkich Park, just south outside the main gate, you’ll find three restaurants with indoor and garden seating. They obviously cater to the businesses in the area, as the park (for a change) does not see crowds bustling through to see one site or another.

Out the west end of the park, along Miodowa Street, there are a few shops where you can buy water or softdrinks. And along Dluga Street, which leads into Old & New Town, the number of restaurants, cafés and bars multiply the closer you get to the Square.

Outside Krasinskich Park
Much of Warsaw’s shopping, hotels & hostels, and nightlife are south of Old Town, along either Marszaekowska Street or Krakowskie Przedmiesce Street. The north-south tram routes run along Marszaekowska, and to get to Old Town, the stop is just south of Krasinkich Park. A convenient route to Old Town is directly through K-Park or its larger green-space two blocks south, Saski Gardens.

The house at Kanonia 20/22 is not much wider than its front doorway, and is perhaps the narrowest home in the world. Nearby is a covered walkway built along the street after the failed assassination of King Sigismund III. Defensive walls mark the boundary of Old Town. Its highlight is the Barbakan, an imposing fort-like structure built in 1548.

At the south end of Old Town is the Royal Castle. It had fallen to ruin (literally, a pile of rubble) by the 1960s, so the Communist government rebuilt it from 1971-1984. Its original palace dated to the 14th Century, had been residence to Polish kings, modern presidents, and finally the seat of parliament. You can tour the reconstructed royal apartments, filled with painting of famous Polish historical events. For more on the city, jump to the Warsaw city page.
Museums outside Krasinkich Park include the Historical Museum (Warsaw history), the National Museum of art; a kilometer south of the park, at Szucha 25 is the building that housed Nazi Germany’s Gestapo headquarters during its occupation of Poland during World War II (ironically, the building had been built in 1930 as a centre for the study of religious beliefs); the tallest building in Poland is just down the street from Warsaw’s Central Train Station: the Palace of Culture & Science was commissioned by Joseph Stalin as a “gift from the Soviet people” in 1952. Workers constructed the building around the clock and the 231-meter (@700ft) high “palace” was completed in just three years.

Directions to Krasinskich Park
Krasinkich Park is three blocks outside Old Town Square on Dluga Street at Miodowa Street. Look for the big green swatch against the city skyline as you walk out of Old Town along Dluga Street. As mentioned earlier, the central north-south tram line runs along Marszaekowska Street, with a stop at the foot of Saski Gardens and another just a stone’s throw from the stone-pillared entrance to Krasinskich Park. Metro stops are less frequent than the tramways, but the Ratusz stop lets out at the southwest corner of K-Park.
