    We enjoyed walking up to the mound and then climbing the mound itself. The history behind it is pretty interesting and the ticket includes the museum entry and mound climb. Loads of school trips here which made it a bit tricky as it was very busy! Worth it for the views though.

    A mound erected in the 1800’s to honour one of the Polish-Lithuanian patriots.
    The mound was erected as a memorial to Kosciuszko and his work for the liberation of these lands from the oppressors. The Austrians built a small fortress around it, and the mound itself gives great views of the city and the surrounding lands. It is worth a visit if in Krakow.

    Long Winter Walk From Krakow Main Town
    We had to walk through a winter wilderness from the main town all the way to the mound, including through the small forest which was eerily quiet but very picturesque. The paths were all marked and there were others around, but I'm glad we did it in the morning as it would've been interesting getting back in the early fading light of winter. The mound itself was interesting - snow and ice and no handrails, so watch out of you suffer from vertigo! Entry was 48 zloty for two of us, so under £5 each. Views from the top were pretty awesome - loads of mist could be seen in the mountains to the East, and there's a huge power station dominating the Krakow skyline to the North of the city which I wasn't expecting.

The only way to be able to go up the mound is to pay to see the museum. As we'd already traveled there by bus, we thought we may as well pay up. The museum isn't very big and what's there was of no interest to us. Nice view from the mound, but that's it.

You have to pay for a small museum to walk up the hill. There are no rails or directions, so unfortunately, you get rude people barging past you when you are close to the edge, which isn't nice with children. Nice view from the top.

The walking path up to the Kopiec Kosciuszki is quite nice to have walk. However, the panoramic view of the city which you obtain is not worth paying so expensive ticket price.
Also, it is necessary to have handrails and direction signs on the climbing narrow path for pedestrians in order to have more safe walk.

Beautiful view of the whole city! The ticket also included the entrance to the museum. You walk out through the museum and then climb up, where a beautiful view awaits you! :-)
