One of the best roof top gardens I've seen to date. Local bus route 127 from Centrum drop you outside the library and various other bus routes available. Amazing views of the river and the gardens so why not take the opportunity to take pictures.

The Library was built in 1999 and occupies a whole block. There are three good reasons for visiting it: i) the building is a splendid example of post-modern architecture, ii) there is a large and beautiful botanical garden, part of which is located on the...More

Yes, it is free, but it is worth exactly what you pay for it, meaning not much.Most of the things growing there are grass, low-growing junipers and pines, and foundation shrubs. If you are looking for blooming plants, other... More
