When I looked up things to do in Warsaw and saw “a library”, I didn’t think much of it. I know academia, seen my fair share of libraries, so what could be so different about this library? But on a gloomy rainy day that forced me to visiting a museum, I took a couple of hours to see the Copernicus Science Centre and the University of Warsaw library was just nearby, so I thought I might as well go have a look. Was I in for a surprise. On top of the University of Warsaw library are gorgeous rooftop gardens, green and blooming, with a very high-techy look. With views down over the nearby museum and the Vistula river, it’s definitely worth your half an hour wondering these lovely gardens.
What does it look like?
Charming, isn’t it? Be sure to combine this with a visit to the Copernicus Science Centre museum, and there are lots of nice cafes and restaurants in the university area.
