Fővárosi Szabó Ervin Könyvtár is the largest library network in Budapest, Hungary.The Metropolitan Ervin Szabó Library's main branch is housed in the 19th-century neo-baroque Wenckheim Palace.The municipal library needed more space as its collection grew, so it expanded to a network of additional buildings while restoring the palace as a national monument. The library is now 13,000 m² and houses Budapest's largest public collection of books with a capacity for 1,100,000 volumes.In 2003, the International Real Estate Federation awarded the Prix d’Excellence to its central building.

  • I'm going to explore the major cities when the country's national, municipal, public, or visit the University Library. National level, culture, country or that the country is the national administration felt how the library can be seen here. This is the city library. Also featuring some of the area is very colorful inside the building, Hungary. Municipal library as long as care management and lots of books and a lot of people I called to judge Hungary was to enrich the country level

  • At one time it was used as a Palace converted into the library where you are using the building. the neo-Baroque building was built in the form of external but internal decorations splendor to this day. By the way, hallways and show in the center of the room on the fourth floor of the building, especially room chandelier Miss! It is also one of the most popular spots of the library, decorated in gold leaf on a white background is really so beautiful.

  • They charge u to go in. You have to pay for Internet as a guest. It's actually totally overrated. I love libraries generally but this was not as impressive as I expected. Underwhelmed generally. 
  • Huge, beautiful library. Ideal for studiing but in exam periods it can be crowded.
  • A great, quiet place to study for exams. Sometimes a bit crowded though. The staff can help you find any book you're looking for.
  • If you can't find what you are looking for here, your best bet is the national library in the castle of Buda
  • Great place for study & reading, but weak community place. Great collection of books, for students and professionals as well.
  • Congratulations.One of the must beauty&comfortable&new modern&technical updating&lovely Library&bookmarks of Budapest&even in South&East Europe.Thnx for all
