The place has history and the amazing view for Krakow if the weather is ok. Its nice to go there during the sunny day. Be careful going up the hill.

Took the tram (15 mins from Old Town) to Salwater, then walked up to the Mound, cost is not a lot, views are amazing, you can pick out two mounds, one being Krakus Mound (free) from here. There are four in total. well looked after.

I went here one day when it was pretty hot, from my hotel near Wawel, a good decent 45minute walk to the mount from there. The cost in is cheap, and worth it for the panoramic views all around the city. You can see the city centre and Wawel in the distance too. Ideal to get away from the town... More

This is a symbolic mound dedicated to Polish national hero Tadeusz Kosciuszko (he's not interred there - the body reposes in a sarcophagus in Wawel Cathedral's crypt) raised by a collective effort of Krakow's citizens in the 1820s. If you're even remotely interested in Kosciuszko (and he's a fascinating historical figure, considered a United States hero as well), this is... More

This is my second visit here. From Krakow centre, take Number 2 tram to Salwator, and then change to Number 100 bus which takes you to the mound. 1 bus per hour at 10 min past the hour Journey time in total about 45 min. 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.

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...
