We peeked inside the gates to the University of Warsaw. Didn't have time to do a proper walk around. However, if the entrance is any indication of what beauty lies within, it is worth another visit the next time we are in Warsaw. There is never enough time to see everything and this was our first visit to the city.

A friend of mine who is pursuing a doctorate at the University of Warsaw gave me a quick tour of parts of this beautiful educational institution. While we were there - on a Sunday - there was some type of festival going on, and there was musical entertainment. I'd like to spend more time there.

This university and campus is in the location of Novy Swiat which is a very central road for shopping and relaxing! There are many youths who attend college and it's gardens are great for chilling!

The downtown historic campus of Warsaw university is a simply beautiful set of classicist buildings serving Poland's second oldest university. Located at the Krakowskie Przedmiescie street it is definitely worth a stroll, especially when not in session.

Really a wonderful chance to go for a walk through the university, as that alone is a pleasant experience. To see the youth rushing around, ready to take their new found knowledge to the world. This modern and hip city is quite amazing.

A majestic building close to Stare Miasto, has great ambiance and the buildings are very stylish and speak Old Polish culture. Worth a walk through

If you walk to the main street, sooner or later you'll see nice gate to the university of Warshaw. We were curious to see inside, so we walk in. Nice building around and so as the garden.

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 .
