Kosciuszko Mound (Kopiec Kosciuszki) Tours and Activities

star-4
31 Reviews

Built by the citizens of Krakow in 1823, the verdant Kościuszko Mound (Kopiec Kościuszki) is as revered as it is beautiful. One of four mounds in Krakow, it sits on top of Blessed Bronislawa Hill in honor of Polish national hero Tadeusz Kościuszko. The hollow mound is modeled after the city’s prehistoric Krak and Wanda burial grounds and made from soil brought from towns all over Poland. Inside, are urns with soil from the battlefields where Kościuszko fought. Visitors can follow a serpentine path to the top of the hill, where they will find a granite boulder inscribed with Tadeusz Kosciuszko’s name and spectacular views of the city and neighboring Tatra Mountains.

Next to the mound is a museum that displays artifacts relating to Kościuszko, who fought in the American War of Independence and later inspired an uprising against foreign rule in Poland. Visitors may also be interested in the neo-Gothic Chapel of St. Bronislawa, which contains several objects related to Kosciuszko, as well as the surrounding fortifications which include additional historical exhibitions.

The rocky hill towering over the bank of the Vistula has been the seat of secular and church authorities for centuries, and today it is the most visited and one of the most important museums in Poland. It collects collections of paintings, sculptures, fabrics, militaria and furniture. The permanent exhibitions in the castle recreate the appearance of the rooms from the Renaissance and Baroque periods. After seeing with an experienced local guide the original royal chambers, entering the majestic Cathedral and learning about the most interesting historical facts intertwined with fairy-tale stories, we will invite you to lunch at a nearby cafe and take a moment to breathe. Finally, you will board a modern catamaran to take an intimate cruise on the queen of Polish rivers - the Vistula, and be able to admire Wawel, the Cathedral and a little of Krakow scattered on its shores from this side.
