    Some people love antiques, some people love visiting castles with their long history and crumbling towers. For me, it's libraries. The architecture and the books. Row after row, shelf after shelf...just magical!

    I've created a list of what I think are the most amazing libraries in the world (in random order). Some I've visited already, but most are yet to be discovered. (click to enlarge photos)
