Visiting the university area is a pleasant experience. Right in the middle of town, you find a very peaceful and comfortable spot. Lots of trees and flowers. Don't miss the roof-garden on top of the liberary. Terific vue and another pleasant green area.

The garden on the roof is beautiful. If you're planning to visit there, plan it with a visit in the Copernicus science center. The visit on the roof is 30min max and the Copernicus center is 2 minutes by foot.

The University Libary has a unique garden which continues upwards to its terrace. Its green setting is marvellous while it has a viewpoint overlooking the river Vistula. The whole place fits perfectly to the academic atmosphere of the building.

Placed behind the University campus, close to the river Wisla, is the Library of the University. A really architectonial interesting building, which shouldt be seen. And then a stroll through the gardens, not at least the roof garden, that is just marvolous. Cafe on the spot with small dishes and coffee, tea and soft drinks (no alcoholic drinks there). From...

The Library of University of Warsaw is not only a place for academic excellence, it is also a living example of Polish aesthetic brilliance. This monument has several historical attachments and even after the world war attacks, still remains as one of the richest sources of knowledge to the Polish and the world. The unique display of different world languages... More

it's a good place to spend a hot, sunny, spring afternoon there, reading a good book. the building itself is quite raw and rough in my opinion, but it's good to be there at least once ;)

What other library has a park on its roof? What other building do you know of that has a park on its roof? The views and atmosphere is great. The roof aside - the architectural features of the Library makes it one of the most beautiful buildings in Poland. This is a landmark building that if you have time to... More
