Guided tours with presentation of museum pieces
Our guided tours focus on the history of the University Library and Archives, Eötvös Loránd University. The library palace was designed by Antal Szkalnitzky. Up-to-date technology of the time was used for ventilation, heating and illumination. The tour will take you through the entrance hall decorated with sgraffiti to the reading room with figures on its ceiling which symbolise sciences and arts. Besides the magnificent art and architecture of the reading room of the University Library and Archives, you can also see an oil-painting of the middle-aged Franz Joseph I. by Mór Than. Our librarians will tell you the secrets, and show you the hidden nooks and crannies of the library. The tour includes a visit to an exhibition of our books on medicine. Join our library tour!
