Pilsudski's Mound - Review
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
You have to be rather sporty to climb the Mound hill. I would recommend to visit the place on foot, not by bike, as you might get exhausted. The view is nice, but Krakow city is far, as for me
Another one mound in Krakow. If you want to bird view on the Krakow, I recommend to choose another one. If air is clear you can see a beautiful sunset there.
Absolute gorgeous panorama you can ever take in Krakow. Tatry mountains are visible when you stand towards south in a good weather :)
This view is spectacular, even better than from Kopiec Kosciuszko, and entrance is free
Great view on the entire city and neighbourhoods. You can recognize the most of Krakow's prominent churches. You may also see Beskidy and Tatras in south when visibility is high. In north there is Krakow-Czestochowa upland observed, which is made of limestones mostly.
