Information

Krakus Mound is thought to be the oldest man-made structure in existence in Krakow. Built on top of Lasota Hill it reaches 16 metres in height and 57 metres in diameter at base and 8 metres at the top. Despite numerous excavations and thorough study the researchers could not conclude on its purpose or age. Most hypotheses suggest that Krakus Mound is a burial monument of some sort. Coincidentally, a local tale says it is a resting place of Krakus – a legendary king and a founder of Krakow, hence the name.
