This library was built on an area of 2 hectares, and is without a doubt one of the biggest building complexes in Europe.
The frescos decorating the ceiling were the creation of Jan Hiebl. This library can be found in Prague, in the Czech Republic. They have allegorical motifs of education as well as portraits of Jesuit saints, past patrons of the library and other prominent people.
It also houses an amazing collection of geographical and astronomical globes at its center, mostly the works of the Jesuit order. They’ve also constructed astronomical clocks.
The interior of the library has remained unchanged and untouched since the 18th century.
This historic library has recently consented to let Google scan some of its rare and historical books for posterity.
