Around and About in Warsaw

Today we visited the University of Warsaw’s library – an architectural delight and sustainable green building.  The exterior is a fantastic green metal with famous writings, quotes, and music notes.  The ceiling is glass with a rooftop of greens while plants are also growing down the sides of the building in the interior.

The interior creates a calming effect

The Warsaw University’s library boasts a rooftop garden with views of the Vistula River and over 10.000 square meters of beautiful plants, lawns, ponds and even a waterfall.

Then we went to the Copernicus Science Museum and then we went to…okay, okay, most of the day my mom and I spent at the spa.  But my dad didn’t and instead he shared that he saw some other real architectural marvels!

Other stuff around town:

what a sweet, gentle and loving soul - revered all over Poland (and the world)

we stayed on this street 10 years ago - very quaint
