A library, a cultural institution, a valuable spiritual center… Library Lyuben Karavelov is a beacon for locals and travelers alike. After the late 19th century, the library served as a symbol for the recovery of Bulgaria from its liberation. It didn’t take much time for its visionary committee to fill the reserves with a variety of books and scripts. Today, with over 600,000 documents, the library takes pride in being one of the oldest cultural reserves. At the heart of Ruse, it stands as a trove of knowledge and exquisite architecture.

The purposeful presence of the library reflects on the brilliant design of the building. Fresh onlookers will notice a sense of optimism on its exterior. The entrance with a silver dome is its main highlight. Also, the L-shaped building features a rose hue so welcoming that you won’t be able to resist. It constitutes one of the most pleasing sights in all of Ruse. The best location at the touristic center is the icing on top. It draws passersby almost immediately. One step into its spacious hall is enough for its marvels to unfold at full speed.

The personal collections of several scholars, writers, and revolutionaries meet viewers in the library. They are the most valuable pieces of national memory. You will also have a chance to observe fascinating bookplates from an international competition.
