I was expecting more, you don't have a feel of "garden", no real flowerbeds or complicated compositions rather some basic grass areas plus shrubs and some arcades and in between all this there are library chimneys. Moreover, at some parts you hear quite a lot the ventilators/AC, but I'm still glad that I came. And, as this is a rooftop... More

I liked the idea of a roof garden itself, so it was one of the first points on my to-see-in-warsaw list. The weather was not wery nice when I get here which was good for taking quite apocalyptic photos :) I liked how the space is organized, there is a perfect combination of urban constructions and greenery. A lot of... More

Very nice place in the city center. A view of the Vistula River, the Royal Castle, Prague, National Stadium. The peace and quiet, you can relax after a strenuous hiking around the city :)

If in the area check out this interesting garden roof top, would be great if more modern buildings followed this trend.

It's a very original library. There is Costa cafe on the ground floor and a beautiful garden on the top. It's good to take a rest after reading book. We didn't enter where we have books since everyone scanned their car before entering.

the rooftop garden at the university library is a bit of a hidden gem, it's peaceful and quiet and has fabulous views over the river and towards the city I'd recommend it, easy to get to by bus or through the university from nowy swiat not signposted but through the uni' to the side of the main building through the...

Modern and a very interesting building. Entrance to the garden is free and is on the left side of the building; no need to go inside unless you would like to visit cafe there. View on the river, stadium and old town.

Go there in sunny day, grab a blanket, water, some snacks or whole picnic basket and enjoy life. Great place to go after seeing Copernicus Center.
