Great view of the city

On our way to visit the site of Podgorze camp, we walked up the mound, great views over the city and beyond, even on an overcast and rainy day!

There are far much better pictures on the internet than what really is. Beyond the history behind, it's just an elevated piece of land without any spectacular sights.

Hi, My parents visited Krakow 06/11/16 to the 12/11/16 and are both in their 50's, and have travelled to many European destinations. They decided to visit the Krakus Mound in the Podgorze Region, away from the main square, however It is quite a popular site for tourists to visit. Around 11:00 AM they were making their way up the mound... More

Discovered after a team journey across the river. Wandered down a few side streets and came across the hill. Soon got to the top and the views across Krakow where lovely. It was warm and sunny and very pleasant.

We walked from Kazimierz, over the river and up the hill. Nice walk, with a 4 year old and a 1 year old in a pushchair. Lovely views from the top, which did need a bit of a push up the hill with the pushchair! I wished we'd taken a picnic up as there is a nice spot to look... More

A bit off the tourist track. Lovely panorama views of krakow, including the old town and the rolling hills. And thats where it ends, there is no tourist information about the mound or the views around. Fortunately i was with locals. You can do this activity in leas than 30 minutes!

A beautiful little mountain in the city where you can get by foot opens a 360° view on Krakow. If you come early in a morning you will meet a sunsire, or come in the evening to catch a beautiful sunset above the old town...so peaceful

Took the tram and a short walk to get to this mound. Offers great views across the city and was an enjoyable bit of fresh air away from the hustle and bustle.

Medieval traditions, close to the "Lebanon Quarry". Krakus Mound is told to be a grave of the legandary city founder. Go there to take grat panoramic pictures.

A bit out of the way and it certainly gets you out of breath climbing up there but the 360 degree views are great and it's worth it for the photo opportunity
