Observation Deck

The open and indoor observation decks are located in the upper part of the National Library's high-rise book storage facility (entrance on the backside of the building).

Visitors can ascend the observation deck using the panorama elevator made by Finnish KONE Company. It has a transparent prism wall made of glass that gives an impression of a fly while lifting.

Thanks to a good landscape location of the Library, the Observation deck has become an attractive tourist object. The marvelous panorama of Minsk and the suburb at a height of over 73 meters is very impressive in any season. Photographing and filming are allowed. On holidays visitors can ascend the Observation deck to watch fireworks.
