Best Libraries Around the World, Part #1

I know you guys love books. People who are interested in languages love reading and books as well. Somehow, we instinctly know that learning involves reading. 🙂

However, a lot variables may affect the reading experience. The most important one of them is the atmosphere. While you can read for hours in a place you like, you can read and read the same line without understanding a word in another place. With this in mind, I searched the best libraries around the world. Let’s see what I’ve found:

Canadian Library of Parliament-Ottawa, Canada

Abbey Library of St. Gall- Switzerland

Admont Abbey Library- Austria

Bibliotheca Alexandrina- Alexandria, Egypt

British Museum Reading Room- London, England

El Real Monasterio de El Escorial- Madrid, Spain

Mitchell Library- Sydney, Australia

National-Library, Site Richelieu -Paris, France

Real Gabinete Português de Leitura- Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Strahov Theological Hall- Prague, Czech Republic

  1. Beautiful, but I would not be able to focus, instead I would just look around at my surroundings.


  2. Awesome! And I already thought the trinity-college library in Dublin is impressive. Do have pictures of the inside of the library in Minsk / Belarus?

    They’re gorgeous! The problem is, I would rather look around than focusing on the reading.
    This is not a library, it’s a bookshop, but I believe it’s one of the most beautiful bookshops around the world: Livraria Lello in Oporto, Portugal
    Here’s the link:
