Kościuszko Mound (Polish: kopiec Kościuszki) in Kraków, Poland, erected by Cracovians in commemoration of the Polish national leader Tadeusz Kościuszko, is an artificial mound modeled after Kraków's prehistoric mounds of Krak and Wanda. A serpentine path leads to the top, approx. 326 metres (1,070 ft) above sea level, with a panoramic view of the Vistula River and the city. It was completed in November 1823. The location selected for the monument was the natural Blessed Bronisława Hill (Polish: Wzgórze bł. Bronisławy), also known as Sikornik, situated in the western part of Kraków's Zwierzyniec District.
Excellent view on Krakow and surrounding villages. Very nice museum about the time of the fortress in 19th and early 20th century. Worth the visit even it is outside Krakow
The view takes your breath away! It is definatelly worth a visit, and the small fee you pay when you get trough the fortresses walls. Spend a moment to read the story of the palce. It is also easy to get there from Krakow old town, with bus 101.
Beautiful sights, don't forget to check out the museum below, all very intersting. The coffee shop is adorable and the staff are very sweet
Very nice place to visit. Wonderful view on the city. It is possible to come with public bus, infact the bus stop is in front of the main entrance. On the top, the space for people is not to much, so you could need more time to take photos or stop to look at the city
Great place to visit, monument to the Polish history. Good view to the city on the top of the hill. Nice building.
It's really excellent place to visit during winter. Not many people and if the weather is good you will be amazed by the panorama. It's really beautiful and worth coming!
14 zl for entrance, and there's really not much to see... But the scenery outside is nice
Amazing with an excellent view and a great cafe and museum. Have a look if you want a dose of Polish culture!
Nice place for sunset and view on the town. Reduced price for the entrance is 10 zl and normal is 14 zl. You can come here with bus 100 and 101 which are going every one hour or so.
There are two ways to access the mound, you can walk up either through a wooded area on one side or using the main road to walk up. However there is also a bus which you can take which takes you right to the fort at the top. The bus travels back down as far as the conference centre. There is a small entrance fee or free with the Krakow card. You can climb to the top of the mound and see panoramic views across Krakow. The view alone is spectacular. There are also 3 exhibitions and museums in the fort. One of which is dedicated to an American civil war hero who was from Poland. There are several cafes at the fort. Recommend a visit.
Great views over Krakow and a lovely forest walk from city centre. If that's not your thing, there are also buses that run to/from the centre. Be sure to check out the other museums of the fortress while you're there. There are also lovely cafes/restaurants with outdoor terraces to enjoy summer sun.
Fantastic view of Krakow and only a 12minute uber. There is a little museum and a nice walk up the mound. You only need an hour or so here.
An amazing view from the top of the mound. Look our for signs pointing to the three museum areas, one of which is in the bus/coach park near the road entrance to the mound, where there are also toilets (free) located.
if you like walking and have nothing to do you go on this beautiful place just 40-50 mins walk from the centre. really nice view on top of the mound. worth it!
Walked all the way here in the baking heat from the centre of town with my wife. The mound was exactly as expected: a bloody great big pile of earth. Got to the top, smiled at the epic view, turned around and walked all the way back home. Exhausted but quite happy. 5 stars!!
Amazing!! Pleasant walk through the country from Salwador tram stop. And suddenly there you are, by a great circular fortress with a massive mound in the middle. Easy walk up and great views from the top!!
Absolutely beautiful! Must see if visiting Krakow. Take an affordable Uber or Taxi if you're not keen on too much of a hike then take in some stunning views of the city!
