The ornate Klementinum Library in Prague.

The ornate Klementinum Library in Prague.

Prague is gorgeous, but it’s possible that the most beautiful set of buildings in the Czech capital city is the Klementinum, a complex of buildings that house the National, University and Technical libraries. The most astounding library among them is the Baroque Library, a structure that was first opened to the public in 1722 as a part of a Jesuit university.

The interior of the Baroque Library has been the same since the 18th century, with its ceiling decorated with frescoes by Jan Hiebl depicting allegorical motifs of education, and portraits of Jesuit saints. The entire building is jaw dropping in its aesthetic pleasures, but even if you're not addicted to architecture you'll find something to love.
