“Gheorghe Asachi” Library

The Library of the “Gheorghe Asachi” Technical University of Iași, which is linked to the Aula through a balcony, was nominated by almost a million users of the site BoredPanda in the top of the most majestic 30 libraries in the world in 2015.

Here, you will enter in a unique world, in an eclectic style – a mixture of Baroque and Neogothic with a royal aspect: circular archways, red marble pillars, fine wood sculpting, gilded detail elements and a coffered ceiling that dominates the entire 55 meter long room. The library’s walls were painted with representations of Moldavian churches and monasteries, and at the end of the hall – the Sphinx and the Pyramids, but the paintings were covered during communism.
