Part of the University of Warsaw, the gardens have the usual collection of greenhouses with exotic, weird and wonderful species from all over the world, but what brings in the crowds during the summer are the stunning rose gardens just behind the main entrance. A riot of colour when in full bloom, the gardens are the preferred subject matter of students from the nearby art college who set up their easels early and paint until the guards kick them out at sunset. Indeed, given such lush scenery, it is tempting to find a bench and do the same. The park is open from March until the end of October.
From March to April open 10:00-18:00. From May to August open 10:00-20:00. September open 10:00-18:00. October open 10:00-17:00. Greenhouses open Fri-Sun only, at the same hours as the park.
Price/Additional InfoAdmission 20/10zł (park and greenhouses),12/6zł (park only), kids under 7 free.
Rooftop Gardens closed until April 1st. Traditionally speaking, rooftops are the preserve of chimney sweeps, superheroes and Santa, but take a trip down to the Warsaw University Library (BUW) building and that opinion will quickly change
