The green roof is divided into several separate gardens: the Gold Garden, the Carmine Garden, the Green Garden, the Silver Garden. For each of them the plants were selected taking into account their color. The garden is a place of rest with a beautiful view of the Vistula River. The green roof is located on two levels. The lower garden is over 15,000 square meters. From this level, a long staircase leads to the rooftop, underlined by the water element (gutters that flow rainwater to the lower ponds). The upper garden covers about 2,000 square meters
