Main Library, Stockholm

Odengatan 63
Tel: 46 8 508 31 100's insider take:

Fans of 20th-century Swedish architecture shouldn't miss Stadsbiblioteket in Vasastan, the city's main library. Designed by Gunnar Asplund and completed in 1928, it is a perfect example of Nordic Classicism, built around a cylindrical structure that manages to be both grand and inviting at the same time. The main hall will be familiar to anyone who has seen Andreas Gursky's epic photograph of the interior, entitled "Library."
