This Klementinum library consists of beautiful Baroque architecture and first opened its doors in 1722 as part of the Jesuit University in Prague.
It’s no wonder the library has been voted as one of the most beautiful libraries in the world making it absolutely bucket list worthy.
The magnificent library houses over 20,000 books of mostly foreign theological literature that arrived to Klementinum in the beginning of the 17th century.
Jan Hiebel painted the ceiling frescoes depicting education, portraits of Jesuit saints, patrons of the university and prominent representatives.
Emperor Joseph II is the portrait you’ll come across at the head of the hall. Eventually, all of these books will be sent to Google for scanning and available online
