  • The library claims no-excellent monumental and historical place. You come back with trepidation. And here is the staff rather employee consider themselves there hike came to Earth and behave ... It is not ethical

  • It and architecture, and memory, and a lot of light. When you enter in the sun-filled glare Hall let just to read the newspaper, there is a sense of calm. Something eternal, always good. And you know that here there have been many great people. The same Bulgakov working on plays, visited here. Save names and sounds. A very positive place.

  • Incredible historical building, a great place to visit or do some work on a rainy day in Moscow. Anybody (Russian or foreigner) can apply for a library card here, and spend time inside or even borrow books. Fantastic views of the Kremlin from the upper floors. You will really feel that epic Soviet feeling when you spend an afternoon/evening here and look outside the big windows.
  • Would have loved to go inside but passing by outside was still impressive. Some stories on the history of this building from a local were more than fascinating.
  • Wow amazingly big library , get free plastic card after showing your passport amd you can enter anytime with it ,free internet, nice environment, there is cafeteria also .
  • The building is not so impressive from the outside, thou with the statue you may get a good photo to show. You may visit the inside, even if you don't have a pass, just ask for a visitor badge - and don't forget to return the badge as you walk out. They are too shy to call out to you in English, and you will not hear them asking for it until the third person asks :)
  • Spent so much time here. It is good source of information
