  • Place to visit. Interior with stairs to the rather beautiful books. Selection of books ok. Average home.

  • Very beautiful building, built in the Byzantine style mosaics, columns, depicting Lotus petals. It is the largest library of the island and named it in honor of the famous fighter for the abolition of slavery-Viktor Šol′šera. His personal collection of books, which he bequeathed to the Islanders, is stored in this library. Admission is free. Sometimes inside organize small exhibitions-photos, children's drawings or paintings by local artists.
