  • Huge library. It was built to look like an open book. It should be viewed from above so the resemblance can be seen. Checkpoint and individual cards are available. Books are sorted by departments. I am not sure about the variety of reading materials though.
  • Design like a giant soviet period building, but flat, no nice details. Who the architect???
  • Great view
  • Very hudge!!!
  • Good building! It would be during the Soviet era.
