Rikhardinkatu Library4.09.2007 at 12:54 | Posted in Architecture, History, Romantisch, Show a Foreign Friend, Where to Read a Book | 1 Comment
The old library on Rikhardinkatu street is an important spot on the map of Helsinki’s centre. The building was completed in 1881 and shortly after became the National Library. Nowadays the extensive library system is called Helsinki City Library, but out of the 40 libraries this one remains so far my favourite. Despite the many years and the all-embracing, continuous modernization this place maintains the spirit and atmosphere of an old library. Look it up on the map.
