Really great view of the city. Well worth a visit, only found it through 'hop on hop off' city bus!! Great place to visit on a clear day.

Kopiec Kościuszki w Krakowie, or the Kościuszko Mound, is well worth the visit. The history is truly rich and incredible. You will be glad you visited. The hike up the mound leads to amazing views of Kraków, including the vast field where Pope John Paul II would hold Mass when visiting Kraków. There is a multi-level museum inside that features all sorts of interesting and historically-significant displays and information. Enjoy your visit.

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

This Mound of honour as a tribute to the great Polish Leader, Traeusz Kosciuszko, has also a tribute in Australia. Polish explorer, Count Paul Strzelecki named the highest peak Mt. Kosciuszko ; it is 2228 metres in height. It is a great honour to climb both!

We took a bus tour to the mound and spent about 90 minutes at this site. We walked on top of the mound and enjoyed scenic views over the city and its souroundings. It gives a good overview of the city. There is also a nice coffee shop with a viewing deck where you can enjoy a break till the next bus back to town. Apart from the tour buses there is also a city bus that runs an hourly service.
