  • To get to the library, you must have a passport. You to quickly register, issue you a library card, and then click Finish. My favorite building of NLR, that art. Metro gostinny Dvor. For there in the first place, much more cosy reading room. And secondly, you can choose books yourself. MFN is reading rooms and books from there make it is impossible. Moreover, it is strictly prohibited. Very nice and sociable staff library. Quite a lot of books rahlichnyh areas, which are freely available. Classy bright reading room with tables with table lamps. Almost every table has a socket, also in the library of the very powerful free wi-fi. A paradise for the modern man. Just in the reading room contains a mix of computers for work and you can make a photocopy for little money.

  • The library's principal asset is what is stored inside, and in this they say is several million different works written in Russian and foreign languages. And that's just to say about them, unfortunately, nothing, because, inside just so don't get caught. Outwardly the same library building blends harmoniously into the urban landscape of St. Petersburg.

  • Modern building on Moskovsky Avenue, entered into operation after years of building and fine-tuning still impressive grandeur of volumes of architectural and also obemami their funds. A lot of divisions and thematic and microfilming Division and working with audio and digital content, and even individual rooms with individual space, equipped with computer and Internet access. Wi-fi is everywhere. There is a dining room and it is not expensive. The deadline for the issuance of zakpzannyh books declined significantly, thanks to the jelektrnnym directories, and special equipment in the funds. The Library conducts free tours on a monthly basis, as well as in the Library hosts various lectures and concerts even judging from the ads.

  • The diamond of Saint-Petersburg. A great atmosphere, the highest level of service, and a huge storage (37 millions, 6th in the world, the biggest for literature in Russian).
  • Beautiful building
  • You can find any book here.
  • Very! If you have access to here it is pretty cool! And there are closed-end funds. Cabinet Voltaire for instance. Oh and just a beautiful vintage place!

  • My favorite library, almost every week and come here will probably go to the end of his life. Emotional historical interiors, professional staff, antique books give freely. You can easily order the book era Alexander I get and read in the Hall. People go to RNL!
