Lonely Planet review

Nobody knows the exact origins of the 16m mound that towers over Podgórze. According to legend, it was the burial site of the city's founder, Prince Krak. Excavations in the 1930s could not confirm this story, but they did discover artefacts dating to the 7th century. The mysterious mound offers 360º of panoramic views, including the Old Town, Kazimierz, Nowa Huta and Płaszów.
