The gardens and the park on the roof is beautiful, but there's not much to do and there is nothing special or exotic. Although it is suitable for reading a book (but I don't read books much)

The building is really something to look at. Great metal sheets with stuff from math, physics, biology, literature... Really something to stop and look. Side walls are story for themselves, as they are covered with vegetation and rather beautiful.

It s a nice and peaceful place by the vistula river but I must confess that there is nothing really special in this garden. I don't know how it looks during the spring months!

As part of a walking tour of Warsaw led by our Grand Circle guide Patryk, we wandered through the library, enjoyed a coffee in the atrium area, then walked up to the garden roof for an excellent view of the river and the surrounding neighborhoods. A great vista and well worth the climb up the interesting "fountain stairs" that lead... More

A treat for lovers of unusual, original architecture as well as fans of botanic gardens: two in one! A unique place in Warsaw: not only a university library, but also a rooftop botanic garden with great views of the city. Plenty of park benches (or the grass) to sit on. Highly recommended on a clear sunny day : forget your... More

I enjoyed wandering around the university, especially to the rooftop garden where you can look out over the river and sit amongst the garden.

It wasn't easy to find the entrance, I hope people will improve it :). We liked the place, it's very green! Moreover, it's for free. I guess the best is to visit this garden in the summer.

Do not miss this if you like gardening. It is a place that has been taken out from the urban room and now is tranquil and makes you wanna sit down with a book and read.
