Poland: Kościuszko Mound in Kraków

Kościuszko Mound in Kraków, Poland, erected by Cracovians in commemoration of the Polish national leader Tadeusz Kościuszko, is an artificial mound modeled after Kraków's prehistoric mounds of Krak and Wanda. A serpentine path leads to the top, approx. 326 metres above sea level, with a panoramic view of the Vistula River and the city. It was completed in November 1823.
