Historic building, once owned by Singer. Now there is a great cafe with a beautiful view. In the house of the book you can find and buy any book. In the evening this building is more beautiful!

Really very nice location with a cafe; discover all floors of books to all topics. Books in foreign language are usually very expensive.
