About

Krakow at one glance

Who wants to see the entire Krakow with just one look? It is possible, just climb the Kościuszko Mound and there you have it - Krakow in all its glory. No one doubts that this is the best view in Krakow. Sukiennice, St. Mary's Church, Wawel - all these beautiful places can be seen from above (and the legend says that with good visibility you can see the Tatras as well).

On one hand, a great vantage point, and on the other hand a metaphor of Polish way to freedom. As an example of this rough route, we can take Tadeusz Kościuszko.  What did he do for Poland, that instead of building him a classic monument, the Krakowians decided to build such a large mound in his honor? You will learn everything by visiting the exhibition dedicated to Kościuszko.

And for lovers of fortifications, the fact that the exhibitions are located in the buildings of the post-Austrian fort should be particularly tempting.

Interesting facts

A monument is not enough

After the death of Tadeusz Kosciuszko, there was a nationwide discussion of how to celebrate the great hero, because everyone assumed that an ordinary monument is definitely not enough. It was finally decided to create a mound resembling the mounds of Wanda and Krakus. The values motivating Polish citizens to do this project were: stability, elevation, and cooperation of the entire nation.

Soon, construction of the mound slowly became a citizen's duty - everyone wanted to contribute. There were even people who came to Krakow only for that purpose.

And so, after 3 years of building, countless financial and technical problems, the mound with a height of 34.1 m and a diameter of 80 m was finished. And despite wars and a few attempts to level it with the ground, it stands proudly to this day.
