Twelve of the most beautiful libraries around the world
Not all public libraries are merely places to borrow books. Many are housed in exquisite buildings that are a shrine to the architectural and design trends of the era in which they were built, as well as the literature housed within. Many of the world’s most beautiful libraries are in Europe, too, and are destinations worth visiting if you’re holidaying nearby. If you’re a bibliophile with an eye for design, these book palaces should feature on your travel bucket list.
