Impressive, very interesting, modern gardens and building. Roof gardens on top of the library, natural planting areas around it, climbing plants on vertical surfaces. Nice view to the Vistula River.

First you thinking why university? But it's worth to go see de top of the building. We love old buildings but you have to go see new site of university. On the top they have made a garden. You can walk in de garden and enjoy the beautiful view .

We got to wander about this highly acclaimed University some whilst attending a Scientific conference last month. It is spacious and elegantly designed as these accompanying photos show.

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.
