view from Kosciuszko MoundThe Kosciuszko Mound is situated outside the centre of Krakow, 333 m above sea level. It is the symbolic burial place of General Tadeusz Kosciuszko, Polish and American national hero. Soil from Polish and North American battlefields where Kosciuszko fought was placed here. The result is a 34,1 meter high mound, seen from almost every where in Krakow. From the top you can enjoy one of the best views on the city.

Mt Kosciuszko is the name of the highest mountain in Australia (it isn't that high on world standards - 2228m I think). It was named after this same guy that you write about in your story.
