National Library is a very original building in the outside, and it looks functional inside, as a library should be. Ticket allows you to visit the big stair hall and a couple of rooms (a study room and a exhibition room).

Tourist can look for books written in Slovenian language. But you can watch so beautiful architecture from Jože Plečnik. It is great to see from outside and to read something about it but not to gop inside.
