Where are we?
The University of Warsaw Library is situated not far from the city center -  in Powiśle district in the vicinity of the Old Town and Vistula river. It is only 10 minutes walking distance from the main Campus of the University in Krakowskie Przedmieście and the Royal Route.There is  a convenient bus connection. Four buses (105, 118, 127) stop right next to the Library. It is very easy to get here from the airport or from other outlying suburbs (you must get to Krakowskie Przedmieście and walk the escarpment down).
