Krakus Mound

Beyond the cobblestone walks of Old Podgorze (an immersive district) and the meanders of the Vistula River, the high Krakus Mound keeps watch over the cityscape. It’s one of four memorial mounds that skirt the edges of town, but is considered the oldest of the lot, with a history that links it to mythical founder King Krakus himself. During the warmer months, folks gather during the evening to barbecue and chat, and watch as the sunset glows ochre and golden across the sea of belfries and castle turrets beyond.
