In the city center there are Planty - one of the largest urban parks, ideal for the average stroller. There, that was built monuments dedicated to big figures.

In the city there are also Blonie - huge meadow, which is a place of recreation for residents and tourists, but also recreation for cyclists, joggers and walkers. It is also a very important place for Poles, because there often held meeting with Pope John Paul II, a Pole.
