Krakus Mound

Local nameKopiec Krakusa
LocationPodgórze, Kraków, Polska

Krakus Mound, also called the Krak Mound, is a tumulus located in the Podgórze district of Kraków, Poland; thought to be the resting place of Kraków's mythical founder, the legendary King Krakus. It is located on Lasota Hill, approximately 3 kilometres south of Kraków's city centre, at an altitude of 271 metres, with a base diameter of 60 metres and a height of 16 metres. Together with nearby Wanda Mound, it is one of Kraków's two prehistoric mounds as well as the oldest man-made structure in Kraków. Nearby are also two other non-prehistoric, man-made mounds, Kościuszko Mound, constructed in 1823, and Piłsudski's Mound, completed in 1937. These four make up Kraków's four memorial mounds.
