About Pilsudski's Mound, Krakow
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.

Pilsudski's Mound, Krakow Reviews - Write a Review
Great location for being in the nature, to go for a walk. If you are lucky you can see the Tatra mountains.
Great view. Good space for time in nature.
Nice place to visit with overview over cracow
Amazing panorama on the whole Krakow and the Krakow Airport. Good spot for watching the planes land and take off! Personally, I like this hill better than the Kosciuszki one, since it's free and you can always chill in the park nearby. To get there, take a bus to the Zoo and follow the signs around the Zoo - there should be no issues finding the way. Sincerly recommend the mound to every tourist and citizen as well!
Went there to watch the sun set, very romantic and good view, the park around is also worth a walk
