You’re obviously all aware that I’m a bibliophile. Right? And a lot of you probably also know that I love to travel the world (when time and the budget allows)! Well, Oldest has put together an infographic which combines these two loves of mine: Top 11 Bucket List Libraries from around the world! So, whether you’re a bibliophile, or a traveller, or both, come virtually travel the world with me as we visit the most bucket list-worthy libraries!
A true bibliophile does their research when they travel so they can find the most wonderful of hidden gems: a historic library. When learning about other cultures, visiting the place where they house their printed knowledge can inspire a truly spiritual experience that is visceral and moving.
Just looking at the scale of the collected works that can be found at some of our world’s most amazing libraries is astonishing for the power of human accomplishment. Take the Trinity College Library in Dublin, which can grant access to over 5 million books. It’s mind boggling.
There are stunning libraries to visit around the world, but taking into account historical importance, Oldest has collected their top 11 bucket list libraries that, though they house invaluable artifacts, can still be visited by the public today.
Dating back as far as 6th Century Egypt and spanning the Middle East, Asia, Australia and Europe, these treasured collections deserve to be on your vacation itinerary.
