"I will not use power to oppress others" – Tadeusz Kościuszko walk

There are many places associated with Tadeusz Kościuszko in Kraków. Some are well-known and quite prominent – i.e., a plaque in the Main Market Square designating the place where he made an oath of allegiance to his homeland in 1794, his burial place in the Wawel's St. Leonard’s crypt, and a mound built in his honour by Cracovians on the Sikornik hill. However, there are also lesser-known places associated with his earlier stays in Krakow, as well as with his memory, such as the tenement under the Eagle, the tenement under the Providence, and the Wodzicki Palace, where he briefly. A picture of Matejko "Kościuszko near Racławice" from the collection of the National Museum, plaques and souvenirs kept in the Wawel Royal Castle, and Kościuszko’s monument on the Wawel Hill, all constitute an interesting picture of how Tadeusz Kościuszko is remembered today.

The walk is a part of the project "Kościuszko – Hero of Two Continents – A series of educational and cultural events," co-financed by the Municipality of Kraków.
