During my short trip to Copenhagen I visited The Black Dimond, the extension to the Danish Royal Library on Slotsholmen in central Copenhagen. The name refers to its polished black granite cladding and irregular angles. The black facets mirror the sea and the sky at the waterfront.
The building includes six reading rooms, hall for concerts, theatrical performances and conferences , scientific and literary institutions, exhibition room, a café and a bookshop. The library is open to everyone. The Black Dimond is an outstanding addition to the Royal Library, it represents modernity and progress. The bridge connects The Royal Library with The Black Diamond, tradition with modernity. Despite its modern design, the building fits very beautifully into surroundings. It is a real treasure.
Without a doubt, The Black Dimond is one of the must visit places in Copenhagen
