Recommendation by Lemi

Feel like royalty at the Austrian National Library! Initially built for the Habsburg royal family’s private use, Emperor Charles VI himself ordered the library’s construction into the Hofburg Palace. Pristine white statues, marble pillars, and a grand dome ceiling rise all around the State Hall in an overwhelming display of Baroque architecture. These days, students come on field trips, scholars pore over the timeless tomes, and the curious public visits to take in all the culture. There’s space for everyone as the Austrian National Library is one of the largest in the country, with over 7.4 million items in their collections. There’s always something new to discover and an endless stream of photos to take. (Hold the flash, please!)
