  • Granted, it does what it says on the tin - it’s a library. But this is no ordinary library and certainly offers a far more contemporary feel and experience to most other libraries you could visit. Alv...  more »

  • 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.
  • Really unusual and stylish building of the Vyborg library, designed by Finnish designer Alvar Aalto, attracts not only locals but also tourists. The library is easily accessible, either in the journal reading room. Of course, it is interesting from an architectural point of view, rather than a collection of literature.

  • Gorgeous place! Everything is in architecture. Present Scandinavian minimalism and brevity. Masterpiece. Zest Of Vyborg. Hipsters can make a million I haven't got any photos))

  • 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).

  • This library makes the glories of the city, and in fact is required to visit, especially for architecture students, which they do with enviable constancy. After extensive restoration, the monument of architecture of the avant-garde lives a new life. Particularly striking attention to detail that showed a team of restorers and Library Director. Come here if you are visiting Vyborg, and you won't regret it.
