Kosciuszko’s Mound (34 meters high, approx. 111 ft) raised on the hill Sikornik, also known as Bronislwa’s Holy Hill. It was mounded in memoriam to Polish hero Tadeusz Kosciuszko The mound had been raised between 1820 and 1823. Due to massive rains in 1997, Kosciuszko’s Mound was seriously damaged. Krakow’s authorities made it open to public in 2002. There is a breathtaking view over the City from the mound’s top.

Mounds of Krak and Wanda (the seventh century) are constantly very intriguing for the historians who assume they to have been tombs, fortifications or pagan temples. This pair of mounds is about 15 meters height (approx. 50 ft) and can be seen from many places in the city. They form a kind of astronomical calendar: from the west (Sikornik) during the spring and autumn equinox the dawn of sun is located exactly on the Wawel Hill, and on Nov. 1 (Celtic New Year) over the Krak Mound. From the Krak Mound on 1st May (the second major Celtic festival) can be seen as the sun rises exactly over Wanda’s mound.

Piłsudski’s Mound is the youngest and largest of the mounds in Krakow (35 meters, 114 ft). The idea of the mound as the monument of the nation fighting for independence was introduced in 1934 by the Union of Polish Legionnaires. After the death of Jozef Pilsudski it was decided to call the mound by his name. The mound was completed in 1937.
