Readers of this blog will know that we’re into beautiful books. Last week I visited Prague for the first time and managed to snap this (illicit) picture of the Baroque Library Hall at the Klementinum in Prague (clcik the photo to see it in grand size):
The Baroque Library Hall is the home of Czech National Library and is home to around 20,000 books going back as far as the 16th century. The Klementinum tour was one of the surprising delights of our time in Prague, at least for me. We had an energetic, although difficult to understand tour guide, who delighted in relaying the stories of the Mirror Chapel, this library, and especially the Astronomical Tower. If you ever visit Prague, I’d recommend this tour as a great way to see the city from up high.
