By itself the Krakus Mound is maybe not that spectacular, though view is very nice, but the whole walk there - though historic Podgórze district (ex-Ghetto), near the Austrian fortress remains and rather gruesome Liban quarry (ex concetration camp) gives you differnt picture of Kraków that old town only.

It may not be the biggest or widest, but it's certainly the oldest of the three mounds in Kraków. Built centuries ago, it's purportedly the site of pagan rituals, and from its now bare summit the other two mounds of Kosciuszko and Piłsudski can be seen (note that some of the photos on TripAdvisor incorrectly show Kosciuszko Mound). There are... More

If like me mounds are your thing then you are in for the thrill of a lifetime.This mound is 16 metres of absolute perfection.With each step you take closer to the top of the mound the harder you will find it to contain your excitement of actually finally reaching the top of the mound.All you have done in your life...

It is a small green hill in a quiet area with a great view of Krakow. To make a day out of it, walk over the pedestrian bridge, head towards Lwowska street to check out the remains of the ghetto wall. Head left (if you are facing the wall) up the street to a kid's playground on the right (behind... More

Visited at sundown on a clear spring evening and got a great panoramic view of the city and surrounding districts. Stick to the paths if you go and try and stop the erosion of the site. Would like to read more info on what was recovered from the mound during prior excavations. Why pay 50pln to go up in a... More

We came here in the evening and the view of Krakow was absolutely breathtaking! I can't recommend this enough. We were also completely alone on the mound, so we weren't distracted by anybody the whole time we spent admiring the city. It may be a bit tricky to get to when it's dark, but it was definitely worth the search.

The view from Krakus Mound is awesome, specially at night. You could see all of Krakow and the airport from there. I plan to go there again

Krakus or Krak Mound is a mound raised after the King's death, as a way to honor the king. King Krakus of Poland was the founder of the city Krakow (Cracow). Located south of the Podgorze neighborhood, it is said to be about 271 meters high. (Keep in mind that there are other mounds in Krakow, such as Wanda Mound,... More

A friend and I visited Poland and wanted to take in as many sights as possible. We took a long walk from the centre of Krakow and ended up at Krakus Mound, and I'm really glad we did. Whilst it was freezing cold, the 360 degree view we got was fantastic. Just to the rear of the mound is a... More

Walked to this Mound from Schindlers factory, need a map as not well signposted (yet) still working on paths etc, but once you climb to the top the view over Krakow is fab. Worth the walk to a free attraction.
