After a short walk around a museum on the mound and fort, you start a gentle walk up the mound. Once up at the top the views of Krakow and surrounding area are spectacular.

From the top of the mound there is a stunning 360 degree view of Poland, it is beautiful. Also provides a history of General Kosciuszko, which is quite interesting and Poland's inevitable struggle for freedom. Worth a visit

It was a nice walk and got me looking at places outside of the touristy spots of old town. The view was excellent and entry was cheap.
