If you want a great place to see the all town you found it. With a sunny weather you have here an access to the priceless landmark for the town and mountains on the other side. Build to remember the famous Polish commander - Tadeusz Kościuszko.

The climb to the top is not very difficult and once you reach the top there is a beautiful view of the whole Krakow beneath which is fantastic and along with it, the place also has a museum which is included in the entry ticket and there is also a café where you could enjoy and relax after your sightseeing...

I went there in Summer - when you "climb" this little mound and look - Cracow is lying to your feet! It is really a beautiful view over the city! This is a must see, when you are in Cracow!

If weather is nice and Y find time - take a walk (or taxi) to this place. It's a proper place to have a Krakow look. It's worth.

We have chosen it as an off beat attraction to see the city's panoramic view. First of all you have to pay an entrance fee so we made sure with the guard that spoke broken English that view is clear since it was pretty cloudy. After we got to the top it was windy and you could barely see the... More

I was surprised that u need to pay for the entrance , in the end it's just a mound. However, is very well presented: plan of the fort and history of the Mound; a few wax figure, a few battles with mats plan. There is a coffee shop, you can buy a souvenir or a playground for children. I really... More
