The World’s Most Beautiful Libraries

By KarenMichelle


There is something so enthralling about libraries. The walls are lined with stories of time beyond our reach, and yet, so accessible. With the flip of a page, you can be transported back in time, as many times as you wish.

Aside from the stories, the actual libraries themselves are architectural wonders, and not surprisingly so. We’ve picked 12 of our favourite libraries around the globe, each one so unique and beautiful in its own way. If you are a lover of literature and architecture, these will be on your next travel list.
