Get Lost in the Stacks of These Stunning Libraries You Can Virtually Tour
There’s nothing better than getting lost in a stack of books—bonus if it’s amidst impressive architecture. Given that it’s currently National Library Week, there is no better time to visit (albeit virtually) some of the most impressive libraries in the world. Below, House Beautiful has rounded up a list of virtual tours of libraries in places like England, Austria, New York, Massachusetts, Mexico, Portugal, and Prague, and we cannot wait to bask in the joy that these magnificent libraries have to offer. Happy library hopping, bibliophiles!

In contrast to the lovely tiled facades of other churches, this medieval church is moodier, heavier and more substantial.
