No matter the season of a year, weather, my mood or company, the roof garden of the University of Warsaw Library is and will be one of my favorite spots in the city. Its futuristic and mysterious character reminds me the jungle from the Avatar movie, set in a strange, steampunk scenery.
If you are planning your visit in Warsaw, the University of Warsaw Library (BUW) is the place you do not want to miss. It is a perfect location for people of many passions – book lovers, architecture & design freaks, garden maniacs and many more. Even a short visit in BUW will give you a little bit of rest before or after exploring the Warsaw’s Old Town. If it’s not enough, you may consider visiting nearby Multimedia Fountain Park 🙂

All segments of the garden are interconnected with paths, bridges and pergolas
Didn’t I mention the Avatar movie? 😉
From another story: a Hobbit hole?
“In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to eat: it was a hobbit-hole and that meant comfort.“

The garden of the Warsaw’s University Library is the best roof garden I have seen so far, but I’m sure there are much more! Have you visited a similar place? Maybe you could recommend something?
Sharing is caring, right? 🙂
