Kościuszko Mound

The mound itself, providing a symbolic grave of Tadeusz Kościuszko, the hero of the American Revolutionary War and the famous defender of Poland’s independence, was modelled on the prehistoric mounds of Krakus and Wanda. The mound is 34 meters (112 ft.) tall and delivers spectacular views of the city and weather permitting a view of the Tatras, some 100 kilometers (60 mi) away.

Behind each of the Kraków’s mounds lies a captivating story. You can find out more about all of them from Kraków’s official travel portal.
