Medieval church turned into bookstore
Here is something the book lovers among you will enjoy. In the Dutch city of Zwolle an abandoned local church was turned into a bookstore. Dating from the 15th century, the church was part of the Dominican monastery in the city. It’s a little strange to see big Gothic windows all around when you’re browsing for books (not to mention the giant organ hanging over your head), but it sure makes for a gorgeous setting to get your reading fix, as these images show.
