Krakus Mound - Review

The city of Krakow is called after the frighteningly named Krakus (or Krak). The legend goes that Krakus was a leader of Polish tribes who settled in this area. A dragon had its lair at the bottom of Wawel hill and terrorised the settlers, eating their livestock and virgins. Krakus tricked the dragon into a eating a sheep full sulphur and killed it. He then built the Wawel castle its lair. There are varying versions of this story, but Krakus is according to local legend, the founder of Krakow. The Krakus Mound was long purported by locals to be the tomb of Krakus. No human remains were found but research has established that the mound has a wooden core with soil and stones packed around it. The Krakus legend makes for a nice origin story, and it is most likely to be a mound built by Visigoth tribes around the 8th century, an alternative theory is that Celtic tribes had built it around 1st or 2nd century BC. Today the mound and its surrounding area is a great picnic spot and an area for walks. The top of the mound offers a spectacular panoramic view of the city of Krakow.

Krakus Mound, Krakow Reviews

  • Amazing hostel with super friendly staff. Clean - Safe - Fully-equipped The hostel located at the safe and quiet street, 5 minutes walk from the river, Wawel castle, and the main square, close to most of the attractions and restaurants. Highly recommended. Can't wait to stay with you guys again.

  • This place has a chill elegance to it ... way more like hanging out in a friend's flat than the ordinary "hostel experience." Free amenities and all that in abundance, plus the people who work here are super-helpful in getting you oriented in Kraków and beyond. Small, relaxed, clean private rooms. Really highly recommended. You get way more than you'd expect for the price.

  • EVERYTHING WAS EXCELLENT! This hostel is best of all hostel I've ever seen! Clear, near to center, everything was so amazing! This would be my only pin of staying in Krakow for my next times! Thanks to all who working there, really professionals! Thanks Zofia! And Thank you so much Travellers Inn Hostel! You were amazing)

  • We have been in this guest rooms Na Groblach within 1.2 in November. It was great. Nice accommodation base. We're going to tell all our friends. Friendly and fun staff, great location, nearby Wawel Hill with The Royal Castle, nearby Main Market Square. Breakfasts and bed service cheap and totally. M & M

  • Travellers Inn is the best hostel i saw in Europe so far. Everything was great, Facilities, People, location etc. I recommend this Hostel to everyone. Thanks Zofia and her supporting staff to made my stay really comfortable and enjoyable.
