El Ateneo Grand Splendid – Argentina

El Ateneo Grand Splendid Buenos Aires.jpg

A mecca for any book lover, El Ateneo Grand Splendid in Buenos Aires, Argentina, is one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world (In 2008, The Guardian placed it as the second most beautiful bookshop in the world!). And guess what, it originally opened as a theater called Teatro Gran Splendid in May 1919. Interesting eh?

Great shot by Niyazi Kaya.
