Zniesienie Hill & Tatarski Mound

  ul. Przemysława, Przemyśl     31 Aug 2023
South of the centre, this hilltop park offers great panoramic views and a range of curiosities and year-round attractions. The name 'Zniesienie' commemorates the defeat of the Tatars, which took place here in the 13th century, and - if you believe the legends - the hill's highest point, Tatarski Mound (352m above sea level), was erected at that time as a burial mound for the Tatar Khan killed in the conflict. The hill park features a 16th-century chapel, and a massive modern cross erected in 2000. In the 19th century, the Austrians erected defensive structures around Zniesienie as part of the inner circle of Przemyśl Fortress, the ruins of which are still visible. The hills also hosts a TV Tower, alongside which is a ski-slope with a year-round alpine slide and cableway that can relieve you of the uphill walk.
