The part that located on the roof of the library is closed during winter times, so we've visited the outside part. It looks very unique and cool idea. Looking forward for summer visit when this place is probably best attracted.

This is a very funky place, the library is a smart modern building with a really cool design. I really went to see the roof gardens but not fully open after October but still worth going.

2 things are lovely in the library. First - the walls written in couple of languages and the lovely garden on the roof with the nice scenary around.

Remarkable glass building, roof some what covered by earth and gardens, worth a look if you are interested in that sort of thing. Need a pass to get into the library though, security issues, not sure why

One of the best roof top gardens I've seen to date. Local bus route 127 from Centrum drop you outside the library and various other bus routes available. Amazing views of the river and the gardens so why not take the opportunity to take pictures.

Yes, it is free, but it is worth exactly what you pay for it, meaning not much.Most of the things growing there are grass, low-growing junipers and pines, and foundation shrubs. If you are looking for blooming plants, other... More
