This artificial mound, completed in 1937 is dedicated to a national hero - Jozef Pilsudski. Of the four mounds in the city of Krakow, this is the newest and the largest. Originally meant to commemorate the reestablishment of an independent Polish country, the soldiers renamed to the mound after their leader. Notably, soil from every important World War One battlefield in which Polish soldiers saw action was collected and brought to the mound. When the soil of the mound was threatened by rain, it was made firm again with samples of earth taken from World War II battles. This is also the highest point in the Wolski Forest, and of the views from the top are brilliant.
