Only poor because of major renovation work, promises to be excellent soon, very close to the Palace and in a lovely setting

A chance to walk through the grounds of the university is a pleasant experience. To see the youth rushing about in the historic setting of a modern city is quite amazing.

This is just an administrative building of the university of Warsaw, but the dramatic lights at night make it look beautiful (yet utterly worthless, if you cinsider visiting inside).

It is a quite modern design but it match overall place. Especially, I like the column design so much. It is simple. It is nice!

This library is very unusual in that there is a grassy park on top of it and a sort of indoor/outdoor mall inside it! The exterior on the street is a huge curved green wall with significant writings on it.

They have really good library with a lot of books which may interest you. The gardens are located on the roof and are simply amazing - so peaceful place not only for reading a book but also to have a walk or conversation with friends. Recommend the place!

As a tourist attraction, I'd say this is just average. However, when it comes to universities as sights, this one really stands out quite a bit. The front and the rooftop garden are the best bits.

We went to see the rooftop garden. It was a longer walk than we expected. Nice view, but not much to the garden.

We were completely surprised of this place. This is a symbol of modern Warsaw. Our guide took us here and we dont regret that we decided to visit this place. Go to the roof of the library to find there...a garden.
