    1. One of the jewels in the crown of the National Library of Russia is the Voltaire Library.

      When I saw it I can't believe it. There are many books and I like Voltaire's ideas. After I read Treatise on Tolerance I created the Spanish article in Wikipedia and I was surprised that no one created it before. It makes me think we are not reading him and his ideas, have value more than never.

      I have very good memories of the libraries in St Petersburg, and I spent many days in the reading room of the building in Nevsky Prospect.

      Thanks for write and share your impression, Christine.
