The former Chrissoleveni bank building in the heart of Bucharest, Romania, has been transformed into a bibliophile’s dream bookstore. Carturesti Carusel , or carousel of light, covers six floors of the grand 19th century building, with more than 10,000 titles, thousands of albums and DVDs, a café under a massive skylight, an events space, and an art gallery. Just launched on February 12th, the stunning bookstore is located in a trendy pedestrian zone with hip coffee houses, fashion retailers, bars, and theaters.
