There is a classic place for them that really want to see the topology of Krakow – Kościuszko Mound. It’s located west of the city center and is best accessed with a car, but if you are in the right mood, walking isn’t a problem. You can also take the bus number 100 from Salwator or number 101 which start at Rondo Grunwaldzkie.
