Well worth a visit. It is also a fort. Not suitable for disabled or people not steady on their feet as no guard rails around the mound. But very good view on a clear day.


The best view of Krakow. Go to the top and be dazzled by this little hill and what it has to offer. Small entrance price and a nice walk.

Great place to visit. Awesome view on Krakow. I Really liked the museum I spent there couple of hours.
