I like the Library's design as I walked in. While I walked around the area, I noticed several couples were there for Wedding Portraits. The grounds are very well kept. I give it a 4 star!

The park that grows on, in, and through the library is outstanding! Such an interesting and beautiful design, with beautiful views of the river. Definitely a great place to see an interesting take on architecture and gardening.

This place is fulled with green plants and it's so close to the Vistula river. The view of the panorama city is perfect.

Despite workign at the University of Warsaw I rarely visit the main library, but went over there with kids this Sunday and it was really nice. The library itself is very modern and looks great, but we came mostly for the rooftop garden. I got the impression that it could be maintained a bit better, but it's still a very... More

Wonderfull place for a stroll in the vibrant university part of Warsaw. The library in it self is quite odd, both architecturally and with an underground half empty mall. But in good weather the rooftop garden is amazing and offers great views too.

This was brilliant, what an imaginative idea to turn the roof and walls of the university library into a botanical garden. As another reviewer has said, it is not easy to find the entrance but once you are there it is a pure delight. There are a series of walkways, some gravel some raised and some steps which take you...

Absolutely worth a slight diversion from the normal tourist route to visit his place. It is a little difficult to find the entrance to the roof garden [from the small park to the north of the building], but once up there, not only are the views amazing, but there is a lot to explore in the garden itself. Kids would... More
