We took a cab from Stare Miasto,14 Zloty (I recommend) I was very very impressed! I generally don't like touristy things but this captivated me.Price of admission includes all attractions. In addition there are a couple of cafes for a beer. The views are fantastic, very underrated attraction. SEE IT!

We visited the hill on New Year’s Eve, being there alone and there was almost zero visibility. However, the place has a fabulous atmosphere and we enjoyed it a lot. Lots of flint-stones everywhere, which was nice too. Info board in English would be an advantage.

I approached the mound from the Liban Quarry direction (and what a view there was from that vantage point) only to find the mound is partly being re-engineered and not accessible, although some people had ignored the warning tape and had ventured up. Not sure what the works are for but it is a bit muddy around the mound and... More

One of my favourite places in Krakow, great view from the top and nice walk from Kazimierz, over the footbridge and via Podgorze district. Hidden gem that is slowly getting more and more popular with tourists discovering this ancient monument.

If you want to stretch your legs and want a view of Krakow this is a nice walk. You will find this on most of the tourist maps, the other side of the Jewish district.

The mound itself is set in a beautiful park making the walk very enjoyable. The spiral pathway up the mound is a very easy climb, the views back in to Krakow are really good. The walk from the pedestrian river bridge is also very pleasant through a nice residential part of Podgorze climbing away behind the imposing Chuch which leads... More

This is probably the nicest place in whole Krakow. Of course if you are rather outdoor type of a guy. It's a really place of great peace and tranquility. The panoramic view onto the Krakow and its surroundings bathing in the sunset is one of the best experience you can ever have.

You simply walk to this man made hill. Its a very nice stroll from the old town across the river. There you could walk across the bridge where lovers show their affection for eachother in a very significant way. I am not going to spoil how, but it is really worth seeing. Then when keep on walking you will see... More

You might find it strange but this is truly the best place in KRK. Located on the southern bank of the Vistula river in the Podgórze district it's the oldest handbuilt monument of the city, tribute to the legendary first rules of the city, prince Krak offers the best panoramic view of the city with all it's towers. Very mistical,... More
