  • A wonderful place for me the Finnish and atmospheric throughout the city. If all the libraries were. Of course you want to take an excursion (duration of 1:00). Tours begin at the beginning of each hour for 150 rubles/person (from 3 people, if less-pay for three). But the impression depends on the guide-we saw the head of the Department of literature in foreign languages and she was not very: telling or facts that you can read in Wikipedia, or pedalling in materials science-composition, mark and cost of linoleum and furnishings in every department:( I plan to go again to try to get Savva. On the other hand basic information for further research on your own about the work of Aalto I received. The library itself is beautiful, sincerely sorry that I do not live in Vyborg and can't arrange pass and sit for hours in the reading room. In the lobby you can buy souvenirs with Symbolics of libraries: notepads, pens, key holders, inexpensive.

  • If you appreciate a little architecture, be sure to visit the library. The traditional idea of the logic breaks down. Railings should be straight? Who said this? The ceiling is smooth and white? Forget it! Premises-boring rectangles? Anywhere, but not here! A small space, but it seems that visited the Castle!

  • In addition to architectural features library has a unique portrait collection: for example, a collection of Department of literature which was formed — and continues to emerge, through the Fund, donated a library of Finnish town Lappeenranta. This is a book about Vyborg and Karelian Finnish, Swedish, German and other languages. During the years of the restoration of the library building was expanded with a collection of perhaps the most intact in Russia a selection of books about the work of Alvar Aalto and the library building. Among them, for example, the main biographer of Alvar Aalto, Goran Shildta autographed by the author.

  • With all my love to the works of Alvar Aalto in General and the Vyborg library in particular-the more I won't go there. Garderobshhicy the janitor cleaning the syndrome who are rude to visitors from the threshold-this awkward moment, when Finnish architecture meets Russian "hospitality".

  • A place you must visit. The interiors of the reading room and the Auditorium and the layout of the building is amazing. And exterior amid streets around just fine.
