It's perfect in nice weather, so you can see the whole Krakow and its surroundings. You can reach it by car or by the piublic transport (bus). It's worth your time, especially if you are the outdoor type ;)

We found this whole area of "the Mounds" just fascinating. We had never seen this done before and the history behind the Mounds was equally interesting. Some of them contain earth/dirt from various famous battlefields around the world. From the top of the structures you...More
