Dedicate to a Polish national and military leader from the nineteenth century, the artificial mound is surrounded by fortifications and offers panoramic views from the top. Worth a short visit for the views.

Bit of a steep incline, but the views are nice. The museum is very small, but quite interesting. Look for George Washington.
