Warsaw Gardens (13 MAY 2018)
After having a hearty lunch in Warsaw, go for a walk to the Wilanów Palace Park - one of the rare places in the capital, untouched by the Second World War. This castle is the brightest example of the Polish baroque epoch, whose garden is often compared with the Versailles Park in France. You can enter the park for free on Thursdays; the park is open for public from 9.30 to 16.00.
Another option is the beautiful and romantic Łazienki Palace in the park of the same name. You only need to pay to enter the palace, but the park itself is free of charge for anyone. There are ponds in the park where you can go on boats and gondolas; peacocks walk around the park. The park is richly decorated with flower beds, and there is a monument to the great Polish native Frederic Chopin at the foot of the hill.
In 1999 the modern library was built in the capital of Poland, where you can find not only books, but also a beautiful garden in the center of the city.
A garden designed by Irene Baerski was opened on the roof of the library in 2002. This is one of the largest and most beautiful gardens in Europe, where anyone go up and admire its beauty. The green garden area is more than 5000 square meters, and the garden itself is created on different levels, connected by bridges; there are also sculptures and hammocks there.
The six-story building of the library locates stylish cafes and parking. The front side of the library resembles the backs of books that stand on shelves, covered with inscriptions and formulas in different languages, including the lines from the works of Jan Kochanovsky, Plato, the ancient Russian chronicle, Arabic and Indian classics, and lines from the Bible.
