TIL – The Selexyz Bookstore (Polare)

On today’s episode of TIL, I found out about another renovated church turned bookstore. This trend seems to be popping up all over the place lately (or at least I’m hearing a lot more about it, anyway…)

Located in Maastricht, Holland, the then-Selexyz Bookstore has more recently become known as simply Boekhandel Dominicanen (or Polare Maastricht). It is, hands-down, one of the most beautiful bookstores in the world.

Of truly Gothic design, this cathedral turned bookstore opened its door to the public in 2007, and has to this day delighted the world and fascinated book lovers everywhere.
