Romania’s New National Library Opens in Communist-Era Building
Romania’s new National Library opened its doors Monday in a monumental building in the capital city, more than 20 years after its foundations were laid under the communist regime.
The impressive construction covering more than 160,000 square feet currently shelters some 750,000 works, 40 percent of which can be consulted.
On the long term, more than 12 million books will be stored in the library.
