Kościuszko Mound

Take in the city’s most breathtaking vistas and learn about one of Poland’s most revered national heroes. And there’s so much more to do!
You can find one of Poland’s most unique monuments atop and around Kościuszko Mound. When the country paid homage to Andrzej Kościuszko, a military leader and statesman who led the 1794 Kościuszko Uprising, they built this impressive burial mound. The construction itself is reminiscent of prehistoric burial mounds, but much grander, reaching 34 metres in height and 326 metres above sea level. Climb to the peak for some extraordinary panoramic views of the city. It’s a bit of a walk, but definitely worth it. Once you’re back at the bottom, rest up at one of the cafes. Once you’ve had something to eat and drink, step into the museum on-site to learn more about this internationally-known leader. With views, a climb, food, and a museum, this is a perfect all-around destination.
