  • Building for fans of Alvar Aalto cult. Yes and not for fans to visit. Almost 100 years as built, and very many interesting solutions. Snug so calmly. Reminded Of Gaudi. Not so unusual, but also very peculiar.

  • Very impressive building with amazing history.
  • Exceptional modernist building is the only building of Alvar Aalto in Russia. A lovely cultural center of Vyborg. Unique library restoration lasted for almost 20 years, from 1994 to the year 2013. Before entering the children's library planted wild grapes (as conceived Aalto). They say that in the locker room kept numbers 60-ies. In the ceiling are skylights, i.e. reading room is illuminated by sunlight. Specialists managed to restore the famous wooden ceiling Lecture Hall (Aalto adored tree).

  • 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.
