  • This library was born in 1832. The outside is beautiful. Don't confuse attention as many people, the library and the University. To get there, take the metro line 2 (red) and get off at Panepistimio.

  • In the spiral staircase at the front line bird sculptures, walls are adorned with sculptures of the Griffon. I would visit on a day of rest on Sunday visited was closed, so while you want to enter.

  • We went in the morning @ 9+am and it was closed, but a male librarian staff, upon seeing us outside the door, open its doors for us. He went out of his way, gave us a quick history (it will be relocated very soon) and even showed us around the inside of the library, which is closed to the public! for this, we are very thankful. Its a very ancient but beautiful library, like a scene taken out from harry potter.
  • cool and lots of old books, you cant take photo's of inside and you cant walk very far/long but its worth visiting. the building is very nice and is well maintained.
  • It is a really nice building to visit
  • I spent many days in here!
  • Beautiful library with the historical invluance.
