 A small landscaped green space in northwest Lviv, on a hill overlooking the Krakivskyi Bazar, at the intersection of Zolota and Kleparivska Streets. Until the Second World War it was listed as a public city park. The historical name of the hill is “Execution Hill”. In 1847, Polish rebel-aristocrats Teofil Wiśniowski and Jόzef Kapuściński were executed here. In honor of their memory, in 1895 Lviv merchants erected a memorial obelisk on the hill and built a park around it with a design by the city’s leading landscape architect, Arnold Röhring.

A marble obelisk under a project designed by Julian Markowski was set up in 1895 to commemorate Teofil Wisńiowski and Józef Kapusciński, participants of the November uprising of 1830-1831 in the Russian-administered Kingdom of Poland, as well as of movements directed against the Austrian Empire, who were executed there in 1847.
