Krakus Mound

The oldest man-made structure in Podgórze is Krakus Mound on Lasota Hill, believed to be the grave of the legendary prince Krakus. It has an altitude of 889 feet. The age and the original purpose remain a mystery, although artifacts dating from between the 8th and 10th centuries were found inside. One hypothesis is that the mound is of Celtic origin and dates from the 2nd-1st century BCE.

 

I fully intended to climb this, but by the time I arrived here, after miles of walking and a day stuffed full of sightseeing, with more sights left to see and more miles left to walk, I just didn’t have the energy to tackle it in the end.
