BOTAN – A library with benefits

Vozdvizhenska is a newly rebuilt district and a place you will find a lot of places to eat/drink/hang out/learn/look at art. But BOTAN is the one you can hide from everyone behind a real paper book and spend hours diving into it. It is the first private library where you can do a lot for free.

The two floors of this place have enough room for working, reading and relaxing. There are big light windows to look through outside and a hammock to even take a nap in. 

On the website and Facebook page there is a full schedule of events for the venue, and these are special: meeting with writers, lectures on cultural/scientific/art/literature issues… And my favorites are the evenings of reading, when you can catch the view of one book through the eyes of an interesting person.

A tiny cafe has your cacao/teas/lemonades and coffee, of course. 

Your stay in BOTAN (excluding all events) is free. 

And remember: it is Podil where you are now — a place for a nice time everywhere!
