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

Well worth seeing (right next to Hula Kula bowling) at any time during the year when it's open. The view is truly fantastic!

Go to the rooftop through the green gates just outside the university - it's got one of the best views of the city!

Nice gardens and roof-top view from the library. Interesting architecture from outside but inside looks very much influenced by industrial, Communist style.

The breathtaking rooftop garden, magical colors, garden paths, stream, gazebos - all on the roof of the library building ... :). The area is large, ideal for a walk - like a park :). From a vantage point in the corner of the building is a great panoramic view of the Vistula. A place worth visiting.

Ordinary "boring" plants and shrubs used in a super-clever way to make up a sturdy and low maintenance intensity garden. 2. The walkways and romantic two seat benches in the shrubs. 3. The stunning view of Warsaw. 4. The super cool university library building underneath.... More
