Kosciuszko Mound (Kopiec Kosciuszki)

Built by the citizens of Krakow in 1823, the verdant Kosciuszko Mound 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 Kosciuszko. 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 Kosciuszko fought. Visitors can follow a serpentine path to the top of the hill, where they will find a granite boulder inscribed with 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 Kosciuszko, 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.
