A timulus is an artificial earthen mound raised over graves, usually constructed to mark an important site. In this case, it commemorates the Polish national leader 

Tadeusz Kosciuszko, who fought against Russia, and for the American Revolutionary War. He also let the 1994 Kosciuszko Uprising. As such the amount represents an independent Poland!

Completed in 1820, this is one of the city's four such mounds. It is 34 meters high. There are various highlights. The Founding Act is at the base of the mound. There’s a boulder from the Tatra Mountains at the top. Soil from the various battlefields in which the hero fought are buried in urns inside the mound.  In addition to the history of the place, people also come for the lovely view from the top of the mound, with vistas over the city and the surrounding landscape.

The exhibits at the museum at the mound cover the hero himself, his life and struggles, the Fortress and the role it played in Krakow history, and also an exhibit on Poland’s struggles for independents.

  • Nice place for a casual stroll and a rest on top of the mound. There are a couple of bars for a cold drink and some food. It was not very crowded when we visited in the summer. Nice woods nearby.

  • That was an impressive time for me I've ever spent in Poland. You might see all the Krakow below your feet. I didn't like one thing in this location. It had an unhappy officer. Everything was good without an officer.

  • I'm only marking this a 4 as we ran out of time to go in so only viewed from outside. Mound is huge & if u have young kids walking up this steep mound will definitely expend some energy & allow them to run around. Some of the bus tours stop here so worth visiting, stunning views

  • A fortress that includes a large earth mound that dates back to 1820 in honor of Kosciusko. The mound has a small chapel and the remains of the fortress that houses a museum. At the top of the mound is spectacular view of Krakow and the surrounding valley.

  • It is a bit distant from the center, not much to do in its near surroundings, so basically you come there just for the mound. The view is nice, but if you take under consideration the time and money to get there and the entrance fee and all you get is a panoramic view, it is disappointing, better find some other place where you get much more for less. The hill is smaller than it appears in pictures, a few minutes walk.
