Wandering Librarian: Carturesti Carusel in Romania

While on a 2 week trip to Europe, my first stop was a bookstore at the recommendation of our taxi driver. Truthfully I was disappointed that the taxi driver recommended a bookstore when I specifically asked him about libraries. However, once I stepped into Carturesti Carusel, I wasn’t so disappointed. Set in Old Town Bucharest, Carturesti Carusel, a monument turned bookstore offers an experience with no comparison.

Beyond the sheer majesty of the building, wandering around and perusing the over 10,000 books or just enjoying the beauty of the inside was a great experience for my entire family. Not a bad first stop for this wandering librarian.
