This magnificent new bookstore is a treasure trove for literature lovers and architecture enthusiasts alike. Recently opened in Bucharest, Romania, the six-story Carousel of Light houses 10,000 books for sale. The building's 19th Century faade and interior was restored to preserve its breathtaking details. With a first-floor modern art gallery and top-floor bistro included in the facility, the Carousel of Light truly incorporates a sampling of the best of fine arts and culture.
This beautiful book gallery calls to mind other stunning architectural landmarks – both real and fictional. The magnificent whitewashed columns with ornate carvings are reminiscent of a pristine Parthenon at the height of its glory. The multi-storied walkways and stately staircases evoke a presidential, Library of Congress feel. And the open floor plan and towering rows of books hearken back to the magical castle library from Beauty and the Beast. It's inevitable that the Carousel of Light will similarly offer visitors magical experiences.
