“Interesting building with roof gardens”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

The library is an interesting building / building complex, especially by the gardens on its roof. Next to the library is a park one can relax.

“I could live there!”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

I truly envy those who have an opportunity to study in Warsaw University and visit this fantastic place on a regular basis!
It takes some walking from downtown, but the scenery from the rooftop garden is worth it.
Beautiful lawns with all sorts of benches, ponds, and nice little pathways under the archs of green where one could simply walk and enjoy the fresh air and wonderful view for countless hours - it is a pefect place for students to read, for the elderly to take a healthy walk, for the couples to hide from unwanted eyes, and for the families with kids to play fresbie on the lawn.
An inspiring and appeasing place.

“Extraordinary roof gardens on the University Library”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Situated on Ulica Dobra, just behind the Copernicus Museum, the University Library has the most stunning gardens located on its roof. Although we visited at the start of Spring, before all the flowering, the gardens were nonetheless a delight to walk around. There were also plenty of seats, and lawns on which to sit, relax, and enjoy the amazing 360 views of Warsaw .

“architectural must see”
Reviewed April 16, 2014

this is really interesting place to see - quite a huge building completely sunk in the plants. we were there in March, so the gardens were only partly opened, but the atmosphere was like of waiting for a spring. worth seing, takes 30 minutes. free entrance.
