Sitting atop a natural hill at 326 m (1,070 ft) above sea level, Kosciuszko's Mound (Kopiec Kosciuszki) stands as an architectural marvel that was erected in 1823 to commemorate Polish national leader Tadeusz Kościuszko. The man-made mound was modelled off the natural mounds in Krak and Wanda, and has both the Founding Act encapsulated in a glass and marble case at its base and buried urns filled with battlefield soil inside it. In the 1850s, Austrian fortifications were added to the site, but were later demolished following World War II. In 2003 the mound was restored with state-of-the-art technology to protect it from the elements; a museum next door preserves artifacts and mementos of Kosciuszko's life.

  • Such a beautiful place with magnificent views . You have the amazing Kopiec but around it you can also go for walks . It's very peaceful and gorgeous . It is uphill so pay attention to it if it's something that's difficult for you. You can go by car or by foot . It's totally worth it to do it by foot on a sunny day because you can appreciate all the views from different angles. We had a family pass for 40zł which is around 10€ for the 3 of us .
  • For me the museum wasn't that interesting as I am not a big fan of the history of Poland, but you can't buy a ticket only to the hill. They accept international students card, so the entry price is a little bit lower (15 PLN). The view from the hill is breathtaking, I think if you are in Prague for more than 1 day, you definitely should visit it. The public transport is relatively good to this place (on weekends the bus 100/101 goes every 30 minutes), even if the hill is far from the city centre.
