A tour of the legendary Third hall

The biggest reading hall in Europe was made famous by the Soviet feature film Moscow Does Not Believe in Tears. A scene from the film set in the reading hall became a meme and drew even more readers. Even back then not everyone was allowed into the legendary third hall. Today our online visitors can get in without a problem.

A tour of the Ivanovsky hall

Ivanovo hall — new exhibition structure of the Russian State Library. In an amazing manner, it brings together the past and the future of the book depository, reminding visitors of the era of the Rumyantsev museum while at the same time setting the new development path for the library.
