#27 of 468 in Things to do in Warsaw
Warsaw University Library is known for its main facade covered with large blocks of classical texts, as well as its roof garden--one of the largest in Europe. Notice a large open book with the inscription "hinc omnia" at the entrance. The university motto means "from here--all." The front lobby area and the main section are connected by a small passage covered by a glass roof. Visit the botanical garden on the roof, filled with bridges, streams, pathways, sculptures, and a fish pond. From the deck you can get great views of the city and the river below. The library also offers guided tours. A visit to Warsaw University Library represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Warsaw day trip app to plot your vacation.

  • If you want a fast and cheap meal then this is the place. The quality is a hit and miss. There is free wifi that is quite good plus they have reasonable priced beers.  more »
  • Very cool library, an impressive garden, where you can read and relax. From the garden there is a view on the library itself at the bottom, and shelves. Never regret that I went there! Entrance is free!

  • One of my top picks for Warsaw. Seems like a nice place to study. I've only been to the roof which in itself is definitely worth a visit. It gives you a nice view of Warsaw, and has lots of cosy places to just sit down and relax amongst the greenery.
  • Such an amazing building! And the roof is a beautiful botanic garden. Worth the visit and is also good to have a coffee or snack inside.
  • Oh i love the roof! You can even eat grapes here (it grows here), the view is nice. Atmosphere is romantic and good for working at the same time.
  • Hidden gem! This public library has an amazing garden to walk through. Not just next to the building but on top of the building as well! It's a great place to let the kids stretch their legs, take a nice break or check out the view!
  • My favourite place in all Warsow! An amazing place to relax, to tan in the sun / free-no ticket, no tax for toilet, drinkable water down inside the library!
