  • 國立圖書館的外圍與旁邊的建築物沒有太大分別, 但內部的建築實在嘆為觀止。圖書的顏色擺放有序, 色彩十分鮮艷,頂部的設計亦是構圖精美, 環保的意念, 沒有人在的區域不會著燈,地牢的那一層有一個小型展覽,旁邊有小餐廳。寧靜的環境和歷史建築實在是有濃厚的學術氣氛。  more »

  • The books are really available which is not always the case in that kind of library. It is not the biggest but still feels quite important and I found the atmosphere really matching what you would expect from a library.
  • If you're in Helsinki, be sure to visit the library. It is on the Senate square next to the Cathedral, main entrance from the street Unioninkatu 36. But now, because of repairs, Fabianinkatu Street entrance to-35, running parallel. The main building of the promise opened after renovation in March 2016. First of all, it's free and without any of your documents, without burning. Just come in the locker room leaving my coat and bag-and pass. Secondly, you find yourself in the historical building of 1845, architect Carl Ludvig Engel, Nicholas I asserted the project, and the building was a political idea: architectural means of emphasizing political relationship with Russia, specifically, with St. Petersburg. Annex "Rotunda" 1902-1906 (architect Karl Gustav Nystrom). Thirdly, you have the opportunity to read a book in Russian. Books of pre-revolutionary publications are on the shelves and you can easily take any of them, sitting behind a table and read. From 1809 to 1917 years Finland was part of the Russian Empire as an autonomous Grand Duchy of Finland. During this period, Finland won the right to keep their own copies of all printed matter published in Russia. Thanks to its many revenues from Russia, in Finland formed one of the largest collections of pre-revolutionary literature into Russian and the languages of other ethnic groups of the Russian Empire. All of these books to this day used by scientists from all over the world and manufacturers of facsimile editions.
