Published Dec 8, 2015 5:00 AM
This Czech Republic library has remained the same since the 18th century, to the point where stepping inside is akin to transporting yourself to another world. It first opened in 1722 as part of the Jesuit University, is home to more than 20,000 books (and Instagram opportunities). The weight and intricate elegance of this space provide a window into design ideals of the past, and remind us how much we should treasure spaces where time stands still.
