Favourit tourist attraction of Krakow visitors is one of four Krakow mounds. By bus it takes about 10 minutes to get here and the bus stop is right at the entrance to the fort/mound. The other option is to use path around river bank and then throught the alley. Trip recommendation: Visit Pilsudski's mound (which is higher than this) and... More

We walked from the main square in Krakow to Wawel Castle and then along the river to get to the mound. It was such a lovely walk, I highly recommend walking rather than getting a tram or bus. It took us about an hour and it was not that strenuous. The mound itself is great and I could have sat... More

This was one of the highlights of our Krakow trip, not just because of this unusual monument but the fact we visited it on a gloriously warm sunny day. It’s one of three mounds that are dotted around Krakow, but for me is undoubtedly the best of the bunch. Unlike the other two mounds this one is surrounded by a... More

A good view back to a distant centre and out into the surrounding countryside. The walk is uphill along a lovely tree lined street and tiring especially if walk back as well as we did but part of the walk can be alongside the river to break up the street pounding. There is a local bus up to the mound... More

We came here as a stop off point. We wanted to climb to the top of the mound for the views and take some photos with our cameras, then maybe have a coffee in the coffee shop. Both of these were closed. I'm unsure if this was due to the weather (very windy) or due to the time of year.... More

I travelled here using the excellent tram system that they have in Krakow.Tip.Buy a day ticket, its worth it and doesnt take long to get your moneys worth.The tram deposits you at a terminus and then its a slow steady walk up to the mound.On a warm sunny day,the walk is very pleasant. On reaching the summit you get an... More

To get a feel for the size and geography of the area, this is a must. It is a good walk from the centre of Krakow to the Mound however it is a beautiful one. If you cannot manage the walk, vehicular access is available so far up. There is a short ascent to the summit, upon payment - not... More

We visited this beautiful place quite by chance on a cold January day and climbed the mound that was covered in snow. The whole area is surrounded by woods but the views of Kraków are amazing from the summit. The history of the mound and the story of the Polish hero Tadeus Kosciuszki is astonishing as the people of Kraków... More
