Recommendation by Lemi

Raise your sights to the sky, as the Baroque library of the Clementinum in Prague is painted to look like the ceilings have opened up to the heavens. Angels immortalized in paint guard over the 20,000 volumes of religious texts. Globes line the length of the library (also known as The Long Room) detailing the Earth and the known galaxy as it was known then. The management has now restricted access to the Long Room, so visitors only have a few feet to take in its splendor. It’s well worth it for a glance at this divine reading room, though. Augment your exploration of the Clementinum with our recommended read: “The Secret Miracle” by renowned writer Jorges Luis Borges. In his story, a man sought God on the shelves of the library—and found Him.
