The National Library is rightly called the keeper of knowledge. The capital's landmark will leave no one indifferent: an unusual shape of the building, a welcoming and cordial team and an impressive collection of documents attract its visitors. It seems you can stay here all day: head off on an adventure together with the main characters of the books, enjoy art and even to indulge in large-scale research.

Is that all you know about the Library? Do you know its history, that our guides will gladly share? Have you visited the Book Museum, where you can find Francysk Skaryna's Bible, dated 1517–1519? Have you ever visited international exhibitions of famous artists and illustrators? Have you admired the beauty of the capital from the Observation Deck?

Besides, the Library caters not only to the needs of the soul! The Fitness Centre with a gym and sauna will heartily welcome new visitors.
