Artificial mounds have been created for a variety of reasons throughout history, including ceremonial), burial, and commemorative purposes. The Kosciuszko Mound in Kraków, Poland, erected by Cracovians in commemoration of the Polish national leader Tadeusz Kos'ciuszko, is an artificial mound modeled after Kraków's prehistoric mounds of Krak and Wanda.

A serpentine path leads to the top, approx. 326 metres (1,070 ft) above sea level, with a panoramic view of the Vistula River and the city. It was completed in November 1823. The location selected for the monument was the natural Blessed Bronislawa Hill situated in the western part of Kraków's Zwierzyniec District. It is one of Kraków's four mounds. The other three major mounds in Kraków are: Krakus Mound, Wanda Mound and Pilsudski Mound.
