The view across Krakow is sensational, a wax museum is also on site for no... More

We got tram #2 west to Salwator, the end of the line, and then walked about 20-30 minutes along Al. Waszyngtona, past the cemetery (Cmentarz Na Salwatorze), and as far as the mound. As others have mentioned, there is a bus that goes that way, but we enjoyed walking through this leafy residential area. We nodded and smiled at joggers... More

We took a tram (#6) to the end of its route, and then hoofed it the 1.6km up a long and winding steep road to the mound which, on foot, is not well marked. There is a bus to which you can connect (#100 or #101) but we only hooked up with it for the trip back down the hill.... More

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.

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!
