I went to Poland last week for a quick visit, and just wanted to share with you the most amazing place I visited there: The University of Warsaw Library Garden.
For all of those who love nature with a city view, it's a must-see in Warsaw. And it's free!
The garden was designed by Irena Bajerska and was opened to the public in 2002. Coming to my university after so many years being away and seeing this beautiful, green space in the middle of the city just blew me away.
The garden consists of two levels: lower and upper.
On the lower level, apart from a plethora of stunning flowers, you can spot many sculptures, including 'The Mutants' by Magdalena Abakanowicz.
The upper level is the one you can't miss when you are in Warsaw, especially when the weather is good. Just look at these views.
From the rooftop garden you can also see the Vistula river's boulevards or 'bulwary' with many pop-up bars.
Also, very close are: Copernicus Science Centre (picture below)
and Museum of the Vistula dedicated to modern art. The pavilion was designed by Austrian architect Adolf Krischanitz, and Slawomir Pawszak won the contest for the façade’s project.
Have you been to Warsaw? If not, I totally recommend it.
