Why locals love it

Because it is fascinating even after seeing it a hundred times. In front of the inner entrance to the Municipal library, there is a unique vertical "tunnel" made of books. The library building itself is perfect "non touristy" spot downtown where you can find (besides books) budget bistro for students.

Why you should visit it

The best thing about the book tunnel is that when you take a look inside, you will see a neverending hole. Why? Because there are mirrors on each side which make the space incredibely deep and high at once. It is little bit difficult to describe it as the best way how to understand the whole priciple is to see it on your very eyes. Enjoy!

Special tip

You will love it! Just make sure you don´t go there on Sunday/Monday. On these days the library is closed.

I've been in library several times and every time I just have to peek into the tunnel. In the first floor are very interesting exhibitions with quite low entrance fee.
