The State Hall in Vienna

The State Hall of the Austrian National Library is one of the most beautiful historic libraries in the world. It was commissioned during the 1720s by Emperor Charles VI - represented as 'Hercules Musarum' in the larger-than-life marble statue you can see in the photo below right - for his Court library. The walnut bookcases lined along this 77m-long and 14m-wide library hold around 200.000 books from 1501 to 1850.
