The reader’s votes placed the Klementinum Library as one of the most majestic and beautiful libraries in the world. It was first opened in 1722, and it has more than 20,000 books. The library has been part of the Jesuit University, and it’s an exquisite example of Baroque architecture.

Jan Hiebl painted the ceiling frescoes, and in 1781 the director Karel Rafael Ungar founded Biblioteca Nationalism. It was a collection of Czech literature. Some of these books will be available on Google Books soon because many of them were sent to Google for scanning.

The Klementinum is a rare and uniquely precious treasure that used to be one of the third largest Jesuit universities in the world. It is the place in which in 1775, the recording of local weather began. And another interesting fact is that the library is featured in the Jorge Luis Borges’ s novel.
