Metropolitan Ervin Szabo Library - Review

The Metropolitan Ervin Szabo Library is quite a frequented destination amongst bibliophiles. It is the oldest and the biggest library of Budapest. This place gives you a proper feel of the olden times as it was built in the 19th century and boasts of Neo Baroque architecture. It is housed in Wenckheim Palace and has extended over time as the collection grew and the place was not enough. It has more than 1 million books today under its name and is a lovely place to visit, see the great collection and re live the old times.

Metropolitan Ervin Szabo Library, Budapest Reviews

  • Such an exquisite library experience. this really is the most beautiful library in the world I think. it's like a mini Versailles and one you can get up close and personal with and actually sit in and enjoy the splendour. a little bit confusing to enter at first but do hang in there, don't give up!

  • 200HUF for year pass. You must pay for wifi by hour. I don't recommend this as a good place to work on your laptop

  • A huge library in a historical building. Nice, clean and quiet. You should see even if you're not a fan of books. There is a nice coffee downstairs. lovely place!

  • I just love this place. Has children section with English and German books. Buffet is cheap, ok quality. With free registration you can enter and read on site. For fee, you can have up to 10 books at the same time. Period is 1 month for books but you can prolong 2x even online.

  • I would prefer a wider range of English books but in general is nice library. The service is great and people are helpful and nice even when we have to pay a fine for returning the books late.
